ProjectWise Administrator Help

Language Packs

The text that displays in the various windows, menus, dialogs, and error messages can be switched to another language by installing a ProjectWise language pack.

ProjectWise language packs provide localized interfaces for users of:

  • ProjectWise Explorer
  • ProjectWise Administrator
  • Orchestration Framework Administrator

Search the Software Fulfillment Center to see if there is a ProjectWise language pack for your language.

Before You Install the Language Pack

  1. Make sure the application for which you are installing the language pack is already installed.

    If you install the language pack first and then the application, the language pack will not apply and you will have to uninstall and reinstall it to make it apply.

  2. For ProjectWise Explorer and/or ProjectWise Administrator, make sure you first install ProjectWise Explorer with the User Tools option turned on, as this will be used to set the new locale for these applications.
  3. When installing the language pack for Bentley i-model Composition Server for PDF, you must use the same locale across the iCS for PDF machines.

To Install the Language Pack

  1. Download your language pack and extract the package.
  2. Open the folder where the language pack is extracted to.

    For example, C:\BentleyDownloads\pw100003140xx

    Where XX at the end of the folder name is the two letter abbreviation that indicates the language. For example, de for German.

  3. Double-click the appropriate MSI file to install the language pack.

    For example:

    • ProjectWise Language Pack - German (x64).msi
    • ProjectWise Language Pack - German (x86).msi
    Note: On ProjectWise Explorer computers, you must install both 64-bit and 32-bit language packs, making sure to install the 64-bit language pack first, then the 32-bit (x86) language pack.
  4. When the Setup Wizard opens, click Next and follow the prompts to completion.

After You Install the Language Pack

  1. ProjectWise Explorer and ProjectWise Administrator computers:

    After language pack installation, open the ProjectWise Tools dialog, select Set Locale and click Execute. In the dialog that opens, select the newly installed language, click OK, then click Close.

    To open the ProjectWise Tools dialog:

    • On Windows 8 or later / Windows Server 2012 or later:

      Go to the Start page and type User Tools, or go to Start > Apps > Bentley and click User Tools.

    • On Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008:

      Select Start > All Programs > Bentley > ProjectWise <version> > Tools > User Tools.

  2. Orchestration Framework Administrator computers:

    After language pack installation, change the display language of the operating system.
