Adding a custom language preference code

In order for your browser to display the Sterling B2B Integrator user interface and address bar text correctly in a foreign language, you must specify the appropriate language preference code for the browser.

About this task

Sterling B2B Integrator supports the following language preference codes:

  • de
  • en
  • en-US
  • es
  • fr
  • it
  • ja
  • ko
  • pt-BR
  • zh
  • zh-TW
  • du
Your browser must be configured to use one of these specific language preference codes to view the Sterling B2B Integrator user interface.
Note: Most browsers provide a default listing of language preference codes. However, Sterling B2B Integrator requires the use of the specific codes as listed here. For example, you cannot use the default German (Germany) [de-DE], you must use [de].

You may need to add these supported codes as a custom language preference code in your browser.

Note: The instructions for configuring a browser’s display will differ for each browser. Refer to your chosen browser’s documentation for specific instructions on configuring that browser’s display.
