  • The only way to achieve that would be by manually removing the German language pack.

    Each time the Configuration Manager console opens, it determines the configured language settings for the computer, verifies whether an associated language pack is available for the Configuration Manager console, and then opens the console by using the appropriate language pack. When you want to open the Configuration Manager console in English regardless of the configured language settings on the computer, you must manually remove or rename the language pack files on the computer.

  • Hi

    Not sure if this helps (second last point):

    The following items are new or have changed for language support since Configuration Manager 2007:

    • You no longer install site servers by using source files designed for a specific language. Additionally, you no longer install International Client Packs to support different languages on the client. Instead, you can choose to install only the server and client languages that you want to support.

      • Available client and server language packs are included with the Configuration Manager installation media in the LanguagePack folder, and updates are available by download with the prerequisite files.
      • You can add client and server language packs to a site when you install the site, and can modify the language packs in use after the site installs.
    • You can install multiple languages at each site, and only need to install those you use:

      • Each site supports multiple languages for use with Configuration Manager consoles.
      • At each site you can install individual client language packs, adding support for only the client languages you want to support.
    • When you install support for a language that matches the display language of a computer, Configuration Manager consoles and the client user interface that run on that computer display information in that language.
    • When you install support for a language that matches the language preference that is in use by the web browser of a computer, connections to web-based information including the Application Catalog or SQL Server Reporting Services reports display in that language.

  • Thank you for your reply.

    I like to start the console in a different language as the client display language is. Is there a parameter available to start the console?

    regards Reinhard

  • There is no console switch available to start the console in a specific language.

  • The only way to start the console in a different language is to the change the "regional settings"?

  • Hi

    If you have the support languages installed and change the regional settings i assume the info below should work:

    When you install support for a language that matches the display language of a computer, Configuration Manager consoles and the client user interface that run on that computer display information in that language.
