There are two editions of SCSM 2010: English and International.
International version supports English and is localized to 10 more languages:
With the INTL build, you will have single setup experience which installs all 11 languages. You don’t have to install any individual language separately.
It is not possible to upgrade from English to the International version SCSM.
Starting from SCSM 2010 Service Pack 1, we are going to ship English and International versions of SCSM as one version of the product (sim-shipping)
Windows Client can be in any language (SKU & Display Language) supported by Windows Client OS
SCSM Console and Web Portal UI use a similar, but slightly different logic for deciding which language to show in the UI
Client OS Display Language or IE Encoding Setting
Resulting SM Client Language
* SL stands for “su[pported language” (or one of 10 languages we localized SCSM to) ** NSL stands for “non-supported language”. It is still possible to enter and use data in SCSM in any language supported by Windows. But the UI components in the COnsole and in the Portal will be shown only in one of the supported languages.
The console will save the value entered by the user in the German and in the English language packs. English users will see the German value unless a user with an English console updates the value to be an English term. If customers desire to localize the value into additional supported languages they can follow this blog post
You can localize your own management packs. See the “Localizing Management Packs” blog post for more details.
Other useful blog posts about localization in SCSM are:
You can’t localize the SCSM self-service portal yourself. It takes localized data from the localized resources as well as from the sealed and unsealed management packs. The same management packs are used by the console, and there is a lot of dependencies between them, so for avoiding the “mixed UI language” scenario it is necessary to localize the entire product, not just some its part.
Globalization is the ability to work with data in any language supported by Windows, including multi-language scenarios.
If you have questions about the International version of SCSM, feel free to ask them in the SCSM Forum.
