How to change user language of reporting services? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed an english version of SQL Server 2008 R2 on a German version of WIndows 2008. All the SQL Server programs etc. work in English, except when using the Report Manager (http://localhost/Reports) and the Report Generator, which for some reason are both in German. I tried to change this via the Report Manager and configuration tools, but to no avail - I can find no setting which affects which language is displayed. Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem?

  • Interestingly, when I run the Report Manager on an english system, it is in english, and is in german on a german system. I wish I could specify which language it is in, rather than having it automatically choose the language based on that of the O/S of the client system ;(

  • Hi Laurence Earp,

    If I understand you correctly, you might want to specify the report manager homepage’s language rather than having it automatically choose the language based on the O/S. Actually, Client browser language is used for Report Manager/Report Viewer toolbar/My Reports folder name, we could modify the language on the Report Manager Homepage following these steps:

    1.    Click Tools in the IE menu, and then select Internet Options.

    2.    Click Languages button, click Add… button to add which language you like. E.g. Janpanese(Japan)[ja-JP]

    3.    Click Janpanese(Japan)[ja-JP] and move it to top.

    4.    Click OK.

    Browser the report manager homepage, you will see the homepage like this picture:
