I was recently on a presentation where we had to show SalesLogix running in a number of languages including French, Italian, German and Russian. Installing the language packs that Sage provides (ftp.sagecrm.com) could not have been easier. Simply download a language pack file, edit three or four pieces of information in a batch file and start the installation process.
Note, if you are running the batch file on a 64 bit server you may need to adjust the path statement at the end of the batch file to point to Program Files (x86).
The install process should take around 5 minutes to run. Once it is complete you need to open Application Architect and do a build and deploy.
Finally, when you are running SalesLogix if your browser is set to use English (en-us) you see the English captions. If you change your browser to run German (de) and do a browser refresh you see the German captions. Please note, the date formats in SalesLogix will also change to match the browser selection (Example, en-uk showed dd/mm/yyyy).
