How to change language of SAS EG Results tabs?

Hi,

For some reason the column headers on tables in results tab display in German.  All other EG menus are English.  I live in Switzerland using a local PC but the Windows 7 Regional Settings are set to US English.  Can anyone advise on how to make the results tab content display in English as well?    See attached screen shot.

Check the LOCALE= and other options for your SAS session:

proc options group=languagecontrol; run;

If you want the results to be in English, run OPTIONS LOCALE=EN_US.

You say that the Windows 7 Regional Settings are set to US English.  I would expect the EG locale to also use US English.  Obviously the application uses English in the UI, but that may be because you do not have the German localizations installed for EG.  It's also possible that your local version of SAS is configured to run in German by default.

Another way to "force" EG to a specific locale: change your EG shortcut to include a command-line argument:

../SEGuide.exe /culture:en

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem, except my SAS version is in Spanish.

What I have done: Options>>General EG language settings set to English (United States) and also checked the Set server locale on selected EG language, which means my EG interface is all in English, but the results come out in Spanish. See the attached screen shot. Where it should say "Procedure", out comes Spanish "Procedimiento"; where it should say "Variable of Analysis", the equivalent is Spanish comes out; same for all the names of the summary statistics.

I run Windows 7, 64 bit version of EG and Base SAS of 9.4.

Could some one please let us know how to change this so the results come out in English.

Thanks

Ian.

Hi Chris,

I forgot to say that I ran:

proc options group=languagecontrol; run;

and ES_ES was the default language.


Then I ran:

OPTIONS LOCALE=EN_US; run;

which changed the language to EN_US


but the output still gives the names of the summary statistics variables in Spanish. i.e. nothing has changed.


Regards

Ian.
