How to switch the display language in Design Studio

 

Summary

This Knowledgebase article contains the steps to follow when switching the display language of Design Studio (English to/from Japanese).

Procedure

  1. Manually copy Java Wrapper lang folder to <Kapow_installed_folder> i.e., C:\Program Files\Kapow 10.3.2.0 459 x64\.

    Note: lang folder is provided by Java Service Wrapper. lang folder is identical across all different editions of wrapper, which can be downloaded from https://wrapper.tanukisoftware.com/doc/english/versions.jsp . Version of wrapper used by Kapow 10.4 is 3.5.34.
  2. Change Windows Language for Non-Unicode Programs to Japanese. After changing, Windows will automatically prompt to reboot the system to take effect of the change.

  3. From the <Kapow_installed_folder>\bin\ create a backup of common.conf. Using a notepad running as Administrator open common.conf and ed the following settings to switch the display language of Design Studio to Japanese and save the file:

    #********************************************************************
    # Wrapper Localization
    #********************************************************************
    # Specify the locale which the Wrapper should use.  By default the system
    #  locale is used.
    wrapper.lang=ja_JP  # en_US or ja_JP


    #Java Additional Parameters
    wrapper.java.additional.2=-Duser.country=JP
    wrapper.java.additional.3=-Duser.region=JP
    wrapper.java.additional.4=-Duser.language=ja
     
  4. Restart Design Studio.
