Web Report on InformationMap pointing to OLAP Cube with MLS

Hello,
I am using an OLAP Cube with MLS (multi language support).
Using a web report does not seem to change the member caption when surfing
with a different browser language/locale. The web report studio itself has changes its language.
How else does the OLAP MLS work?

I tried creating a "French" Information Map by chaning my Information Map studio to french (mapstudio.ini)
and using this informatio map in my web report* but the dimension member caption is still in the default
language.

It neither works with my enterprise guide. I have not changed the system locale but the enterprise guide language and the cube dimension members are still displayed in the default language.

finally, changing the system locale (windows xp) made the difference and it all worked. interestinly I wonder then if the web application "sas web report studio" accesses the system locale to determine the language. quite unusual for a web application.
