About Installing and Deploying Siebel Business Applications with Multiple Languages

Multiple Siebel language packs can be installed and deployed as part of Siebel Business Applications installation and configuration. Review this topic and related topics when planning multilingual deployments. Language installation is part of the installation procedure for each installable Siebel module. Tasks for adding and deploying new languages are described for Siebel Server and Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE).

Scenarios for deploying Siebel Business Applications with more than one language pack are described in Scenarios for Installing and Deploying Multiple Languages.

See also General Requirements for Installing and Configuring Siebel Enterprise Server Components and other relevant topics.

For a list of the languages supported by Siebel Business Applications, see 1513102.1 (Article ID) for Siebel CRM version 8.1.1.x or 1524342.1 (Article ID) for Siebel CRM version 8.2.2.x on My Oracle Support. See also Siebel Global Deployment Guide, Siebel System Administration Guide, and other applicable documentation.

Note the following recommendations:

  • It is strongly recommended that you install and deploy, or at least install, all of the languages that you expect to require, on each physical server.
  • It is strongly recommended that you install the same set of language files on each physical server. Doing so helps ensure maximum compatibility between physical servers, so that the system can be reconfigured to meet ongoing requirements. Oracle only tests configurations in which the same set of language files are installed on each physical server that is used in a single Siebel Enterprise.

You can add languages to an existing installation of the same version of Siebel Enterprise Server or SWSE software, by using unattended mode (silent mode) only. After adding languages in this case, you must run the Configuration Wizards for the Siebel Server and the SWSE and perform the tasks to add new languages. See the limitations described in this topic for adding languages.

If you include multiple languages with a Siebel Enterprise Server installation, then you designate one language as the primary language to be used for server messages and logging. Typically, the same primary language is also used for the Siebel database, which cannot be changed after database installation.

If you install and deploy a new language in an existing installation, then you must add the language to the Siebel database and perform additional tasks using the Database Configuration Wizard, as described in About Language Deployment Tasks Using the Database Configuration Wizard.
