SAS Change Language

Hi all,


Sorry if I am posting this question in the wrong forum - the guys in my office have installed on my computer SAS but all the logs and error messages are in German language and not English Smiley Sad Is there a quick way I could change this, or do I need to ask the Helpdesk for support?

 

Thank you Smiley Happy

Re: SAS Change Language

Create a new shortcut and enter these lines:

 

in the Shortcut target:

"C:\Program Files\SASHome\x86\SASFoundation\9.4\sas.exe" -CONFIG "C:\Program Files\SASHome\x86\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\en\sasv9.cfg"

 

in the shortcut folder: %USERPROFILE%

 

rename your shortcut as SAS (english)

Hi,

 

Print the following filepath in your editor :

 

%put "%sysfunc(getoption(CONFIG))";

 

Normally, the filepath(s) could be something like (for 9.4, 9.2/9.3 might be a little different) :

 

"<CSmiley Embarassed\<Program files>\<x86 OR x64>\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\de\sasv9.cfg :<other concatenated paths> etc."

 

then locate the symetric filepath for the english version :

 

"<C:>\<Program files>\<x86 OR x64>\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\en\sasv9.cfg"

 

Right click on your SAS shortcut / Send to / Create a Desktop Shortcut

 

Right click on this last Dekstop shortcut : Properties / Shortcut / Target : 

 

Add/Replace the -CONFIG filepath already in place with the English one :

 

<sas.exe> -CONFIG "<SASROOT>\nls\en\sasv9.cfg"

 

Installations may vary according to your environment.  

 

PS. Wasn't aware of the previous post. Sorry for the repeat. Looks like the answer was already posted Smiley Happy
