Language problems in Notes 6.5.2 with Terminal Server Client

Hi, I am Jens from a company in Norway. We use Microsoft terminal servers with W 2003 Ent. server. We have installed Lotus Notes 6.5.2 Client, Norwegian version on all servers. When users logs on, they get the English language in Notes menus in stead of the Norwegian language.

What have I missed when I installed Notes, and how can I fix it?

Best regards

Hi Jens,

What do you mean by 'Notes menus" ?  I guess you mean the language of the  mailtemplate (am I correct ?) ?  In that case, you need to download the appropriate language packs, and install them on the server (so Norwegian).  This will make a Norwegian version available of the mailtemplate.  Now after that step, you will probably have to apply this change for your clients (that is, for your users) - I kinda forgot how to do that ...


Goto User preferences from file..preferences menu. Click on International tab and select Norwegian from the regional profile.

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Norwegian is one of the National Language Versions of Notes.  You don't need a language pack if running WIndows servers and Windows clients.  Just install the Norwegian versionf the server and of the client.

Some shops elect to always use teh English version of Domino server, and only use other languages on teh client.  That's fine, and there are some advanatges to it.  One disadvantage in the mail template -- while the BUILT IN features of the client are not template-dependent, and will operate in the installed language, the MAIL FILE, ADDRESS BOOK, and various other components ARE LANGUAGE DRIVEN INDEPENDENT OF THE CLIENT.  So, if you install English templates, you will get Englisg in the mail file.

So, the FIle, Edit, View, etc. menus and simil;ar built-in dialog boxes will be in the local language ALWAYS.
The template driven buttons forms and dialogs will be dependent on the template.

So, when using an ELnglish server for a Norwegian audience, you need to install the Norwegian User Assistance Language Pack on teh server, and apply it to the user mail files.  There is nothing additional to install on the client, as the client is already Norwegian, and is only wanting for a template that is also Norwegian -- which the language pack on the server provides.

I'm being a little repetitious here, but I wanted it to be complete clear.

Hi to you all. I am sorry for the trouble I've caused for you. This was my first time in this community. I did not know the rules. I now know, according to the rules that I just have to ask to close this question. Well, I hereby do. (Please advice me if this is wrong)

I got my problem solved. It was only my mui.dat file that was not configured. I configured it like this, and my problem disappeared:

CoreVersion=Release 6.5.1
NotesWorkswith=Release 6.5.1

Thank you, and once again, I am sorry
