Language support

This section describes the supported configurations for different language versions of a Microsoft Dynamics CRM system. This section does not include information about Microsoft Dynamics CRM Language Pack support, but instead explains the supported configurations for the base-language versions. For more information about Microsoft Dynamics CRM Language Pack, see the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Help.

Requirements

The following requirements must be met when you run Microsoft Dynamics CRM and components such as SQL Server.

Language Supported

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011

The base language of Windows Server, SQL Server, Microsoft .NET Framework, MDAC, and MSXML must be either the same language version as Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 or English. If a component is not available in a certain language, the English version of that component can be used.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook

The base language of Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, Microsoft .NET Framework, MDAC, and MSXML do not have to be the same language versions as Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook.

Each client stack in a single deployment can be in a different language.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook

The base language version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 must match that used for Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook.

For example, you cannot have some users who run the German version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook while other users run the English version. For this scenario, we recommend provisioning the appropriate Microsoft Dynamics CRM Language Pack.
