My vSphere Client starts with a german User Interface. Obviously, the language depends on the OS language. In my cas, it’s German …
To be able to provide screenshots with english labels and error messages in a way, that I can find results on Google more easily. I was looking for a way to switch the language of my vSphere Client to English.
There is no setting in the UI itself, but here is a little trick, how it can be done without pushing language files around like in the pre WW1 days.
Simply add one of the following parameters to the start parameter of the vSphere Client desktop icon
- Simplified Chinese:
"C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\VpxClient.exe" -locale en_US
You can do the same with your web based client.
Th switch the language to French, simply add the language parameter to the URL
