Configuring language for the IBM TM1 Server

Use the Language parameter in the Tm1s.cfg file to configure a specific language for the IBM® TM1® Server.

About this task

The Language configuration parameter for the TM1 Server controls the language for messages generated by the server. The parameter also applies to the user interface of the dialog box when you run the server as an application instead of a Windows service.

For more details about the TM1 Server Language parameter, see Language parameter in the Tm1s.cfg file.

Note: If you want the TM1 Server to use a language based on a user account instead of the Language parameter, change the Microsoft Windows service that runs the TM1 Server to run as a specific user. For details, see Changing TM1 services to run as a specific user account on Windows.


  1. Use a text editor to open the TM1 Server configuration file, Tm1s.cfg.

    For location details, see Location of the tm1s.cfg file.

  2. Edit or add the Language parameter with the language code you want to use.

    For example:

  3. Save and close the Tm1s.cfg file.
  4. Restart the TM1 Server.
