To change the language in SOLIDWORKS PDM 2021 or newer, simply open Windows Explorer and navigate to the vault view. Before taking any further steps,understand that doing so affacts all users on the machine, requires that the same setting be used for th euser in all vault views, and requires a reboot.
To continue, select the blue person icon in the top, right corner and hover over English to expand the fly out menu. This list expands allowing you to choose the different language you you want to change to. You will need to reboot your machine to make sure the change fully takes effect.
Open the PDM Administration tool and then open the settings dialog box for the user or group you wish to change the language for.
Click Language, and, from the drop down, select the language you want to change to.
This will also require a restart to make sure that the change was made properly.
