Interface Language Set via the Registry


QAID # 17917 Published 

Question / Problem:

Is it possible to set the Interface language via a Registry setting?

Answer / Solution:

Yes, you can set the default language via the following Registry Key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kofax Image Products\Ascent Capture\CIName

For Example:
  • English = en-US
  • German = de-DE
  • Czech = cs-CZ
  • French = fr-FR
  • Spanish = es-ES
  • Italian = it-IT
  • Polish = pl-PL
  • Swedish = sv-SE
  • Russian = ru-RU
  • Simplified Chinese = zh-CN
  • Japanese = ja-JP
  • Portuguese Brazilian = pt-BR

Note: The proper language pack you want to use has to be installed upfront.
Also note that until one of the languages is selected, away from the <Windows display language> default setting, the CIName Registry Key does not exist. After that first selection, changing back to <Windows display language> leaves the Key present, with a blank Value.
