Changing Context Menu Language over Access Point

Hi community members,

I'd like to know how we can change the context menu language for an application opened from access point.

QV Server and Desktop installation (11.2 SR6) was done using english as default.

But the client is requesting to have menu items in french when viewing the dashboard over web (for example, the context menu that displays when right-clicking on an object, sheet, etc).

Changing the interface language from qv desktop that was installed on the server doesn't change it over web.

I would also like to know the following:

- Can we change this language on ajax and ie ? and is it a different procedure or the same one ?

- Can we have this option by user or is it applied for all users ?

I've read in another older thread that we can specify the InterfaceLanguage in the settings.ini file, so I assume this will be applied for all web users, but prefer to get confirmation, maybe some changes occurred in that area with newer versions of qlikview.

Thank you all.

Have you gone through the below posts.

Hi Ashfaq,

Thx for your reply.

Actually the first link you suggested is the "older thread" that I checked and mentioned in my question.

I don't need to change the language of the accesspoint page itself nor in the management console, rather the context menu language in an application opened from access point.

I was able to do that by adding the InterfaceLanguage=French in the Settings.ini file as suggested in the first link.

However I wanted to know if this can also be applied in some way when opening the qvw using IE plugin, as it works only in AJAX.

If that dosent work,

Then the easiest way is to uninstall english version and install required version.

Or may be Bill Britt can guide in right direction.
