The Configuration Manager team is pleased to announce the release of the German and Chinese Simplified Configuration Manager 2012 Beta 2 builds. For German users, the International Client Pack (ICP) with the German (DE-DE) client is also available.

Even if you are planning to evaluate only the English product, if German or Chinese is your native language, please consider installing a remote admin console or the ICP client (German) on machines connected to your English site. We are looking forward to getting feedback on the translation quality as well as any functionality issues you encounter. You may see a few unlocalized strings and this is normal for the Beta release. Before getting started, please reference the English Supported Configuration document and Release Notes files on TechNet.
Please remember to submit your feedback regularly using the Feedback Forms and monitor the Connect Discussion Groups. We look forward to hearing from you!
Jeff Wettlaufer Sr Technical Product Manager System Center, Management and Security Division
