Managing Language, Regional Settings, and Time Zone in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Client

This topic describes how to configure the language, regional settings, and time zone for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client.

Managing Languages

Like the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client supports multiple language versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. To enable Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in another language, you install the language module for that language. A language module contains translated text strings for the user interface, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, such as for logs and error reporting. After you install a language module, you configure the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components to use the language.

Installing a Language Module

You can obtain language modules from Language Modules for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 (requires PartnerSource account). After you obtain a language module, you install its components on the computers that are running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV database.

For information about how to install a language module, see How to: Install Language Modules.

Changing the Language

Unlike the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, you cannot change the language from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client UI. The language version that is used is determined by the Language setting in the web.config file of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client website. To change the language, you modify the Language setting in the web.config file.

For more information, see Configuring Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Client by Modifying the Web.config File.

Configuring Regional Settings and Time Zone

The regional settings determine the format of data such as dates, times, numbers, currency, and so on. The time zone specifies the time zone that is applied to date and time data that a user views or enters in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. The regional settings and time zone are configured in the web.config file of the web.config file of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client website.
