In the Use Windchill RV&S in check box, select the product language for the Windchill RV&S user interface. Currently the following languages are supported: Chinese Simplified, English, German, Japanese, Korean, and French. The default value is based on the system language. For example, if the system language is set to English, then the default value is English and the user interface displays in English. If the system language is set to Japanese, then the default value is Japanese and the user interface displays in Japanese.
If the system language is a non-supported language, the Use locale format: check box displays (selected by default) with the value set to the system language. This option allows you to display time, number, and currency values in locale-specific formats. For example, if you select the English user interface on a Welsh system, the locale format defaults to Welsh, and the format of all time, number, and currency values is specific to local Welsh rules.
