NOTE:Languages marked with an asterisk (*) are available for the GroupWise client, but not for GroupWise WebAccess. Languages marked with a double asterisk (**) are available for the GroupWise client and for GroupWise WebAccess in a desktop browser, but are not available on tablet devices or mobile devices where a more simple interface is used.

Language codes are used to identify language-specific files and directories. They are also used as the values of the client language (/l) startup option. Users can select the languages they want when they install the GroupWise client.

Users should have at least 200 MB available on their workstations to install the GroupWise client software in one language. Users need an additional 20 MB of disk space for each additional language they install.

By default, the GroupWise client starts in the language of the operating system, if it is available. If the operating system language is not available, the next default language is English. When you start the GroupWise client, you can use the /l startup switch to override the English default and select an interface language from those that have been installed.

The online help available in the GroupWise client is provided in all languages into which the client software is translated. The GroupWise client user guides available from the GroupWise client and on the GroupWise 18 Documentation website are translated only into the administration languages. If you try to access a user guide from a client that is running in a language into which the user guide has not been translated, you can select any of the available languages.

By default, the GroupWise client uses UTF-8 for MIME encoding. This accommodates the character sets used by all supported languages.
