Supported languages

Adding support for additional languages on Windows 10
To support additional non-English platforms, you must edit and test the Access Profile before you upload it.

Before you begin
Connect to a remote host through Remote Desktop Protocol which prompts you with the localized version of the Windows Security dialog box on Windows 10.


For example:

.Follow the procedure below to edit the AccessProfile:
1. Open the AccessProfile.
2. In the AccessProfiles pane, open sso_site_wnd_iexplore_pim_windows10.
3. Make the following changes:
a. In the States tab, look for the State_After_Window_found state.
b. Select the Localization Support -Script actions that are illustrated in the following image.


c. Open the VBScript in the Script Editor.
Notice that several arrays have been provided, each containing a list of translated strings for specific locales that are supported by the product.
d. Identify the locale that must be changed and look for the corresponding VBScript array.

In the CurrentLocaleArray function, update the parameter, <parameter>, that is assigned for your required language.
<Language_Code> = Array("<parameter>")

For example, to modify strings for Chinese, look for zh_cn.

zh_cn = Array( "<parameter>" )

The diagrams are provided only as an example.

The provided non-English language phrases that you find in the AccessProfile for <parameter> are only place holders and must be updated.
