    Logon to sharepoint server

    Copy your template file from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033 and copy into

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1049

  • Install first the English Language Pack.

    Then you can use the English language templates.

  • Have you already installed the English Language Language Pack?

    An English language template will only be selectable in a non-English SP site if that LP is there.

    (Go to the Language Pack download. Select the word in the language of your browser for English then confirm. You will now get a page in English with the language pack now listed as "English". Now you do the download (and install that version)) 

    If WSS 3.0 you need only the WSS 3.0 LP. If MOSS 2007 you need both the WSS 3.0 LP and then the MOSS 2007 LP.

  • Hi Outlook,

    Yes, please install the English Language Pack first. After you install the language pack, site owners and site collection administrators can create sites and site collections based on the language-specific site templates by specifying a language when they are creating a new site or site collection.
