The ArcGIS Enterprise Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) are built on top of Amazon-provided AMIs that have the operating system language set to English.
You can optionally change the language of the operating system. For some components, you can install additional language packs.
Install additional operating system languages
If the operating system language you want to use is not included on the Windows AMI, you can download and install the language pack from Microsoft.
Install ArcGIS language packs
ArcGIS language packs are available for ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Desktop shortly after the initial English product release. You can apply these language packs to view the interface in languages other than English. Available languages vary by component.
In a multiple-machine ArcGIS Server site, install the language pack on each machine.
The Portal for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Data Store installations include language-specific resources that allow you to localize the portal website interface and the ArcGIS Data Store Configuration wizard, respectively; you do not need to install a language pack for these interfaces. However, language packs are available that allow you to view the Portal for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Data Store help in languages other than English.
You can download these language packs onto your EC2 instance from My Esri.
Change the operating system language
Once language packs are installed for ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Desktop, change the language of the operating system. If you need instructions, see the documentation from your operating system provider.
Language displayed by each software component
ArcGIS Server Manager and the Services Directory use the language set for your web browser. After you install the language pack for ArcGIS Server and change the operating system language, set the language for your browser.
After Portal for ArcGIS is installed, the portal administrator configures the language for the portal website. However, individual members of the organization can customize their profiles to display the portal website in the language of their choosing.
The ArcGIS Data Store Configuration wizard uses the language set for your web browser.
After you install a language pack for ArcGIS Desktop, it should immediately honor the display language you set for the operating system.
