Hi,

One of our domain controllers is running windows server 2008, including WSS 3.0 and the WSS language pack 3.0 update. There's some kind of default site running on http://internalweb and we'd like to start using this.

The menu language is English however and it needs to be Dutch (The buttons & links say "site actions", "lists", "discussions" etc. all in English instead of Dutch).

So, how do I change it ?

As i understand it - having played with WSS3.0 a little the language of a site is defined when its created and cannot be changed afterwards.... since the internal web is the default installed one, i dont think this can be changed.

you have the option of doing a little hacking ( http://www.sharepointchick.com/archive/2008/04/29/changing-the-language-of-an-existing-sharepoint-site.aspx ) but its recommended  that you create a site with the desired language (assuming you have the pack installed which you do ) and then start populating that one....

Regarding the "hacking" bit :
I have no idea where to input the query that is mentioned (in other words, where's the database ? database interface of wss where I can input that query ?)

They also mention MOSS rather than WSS which makes me doubt if it's applicable for me. But I'd be willing to give it a go. Thanks. (btw I'm gone for a few days, but I'll get back to this)
