This topic is part of About Parameters for Language and Locale.
The Language Code parameter (alias Lang) determines the language used for multilingual lists of values (MLOVs) and other application seed data. This parameter also determines which language-specific directory from the product installation will be used for accessing the SRF file. The language of application user interface labels is determined by the language for the SRF file. This language was determined by the Siebel Tools language mode in effect when the SRF file was compiled.
For each language that you install and deploy, Application Object Manager components are created which are already configured with Language Code set to this language. In general, you do not need to change the value of the Language Code parameter for these components.
Special requirements apply when you localize an unshipped language, as noted in Localizing an Unshipped Language.
The Application Repository File parameter (alias CFGRepositoryFile), set for the Application Object Manager, specifies the name of the SRF file. Where appropriate, this parameter can optionally specify the absolute path to the SRF file, in order to use the SRF file in a different language directory, such as to display the user interface in a different language than that specified by Language Code.
Unless the OM - Resource Language Code parameter is set to a different language, the Language Code parameter determines which language-specific directories will be used during runtime operation for resource libraries such as DLL files. These resource libraries determine the language in which system and error messages are displayed and the language in which server log file messages are written.
Each language code used by Siebel Business Applications uses a three-letter code, such as ENU for U.S. English, FRA for French, THA for Thai, and so on. For more information about the language codes used by Siebel Business Applications, see Language.
NOTE: On the Siebel Mobile Web Client, the equivalent parameter is the Language parameter in the [Siebel] section of the configuration file. For each language that you install, language-specific directories are created containing the configuration files, in which Language is already set. In general, you do not need to change the value of the Language parameter. Special requirements apply when you localize an unshipped language. For details, see Localizing an Unshipped Language.
The setting of the Preferred Language field for a user or employee record overrides the value of the Language Code parameter for determining the language for multilingual lists of values (MLOVs). This setting is stored in the PREF_LANG_ID column in the S_CONTACT table in the Siebel database. This field does not affect Mobile or Developer Web Client users.
