Changing your Language Settings in SAP S/4HANA Cloud

***Please note this blog post has been updated***

Introduction

When you launch your SAP S/4HANA Cloud system for the first time, you may want to change your language settings. Previously, this used to be a bit tricky either by changing your browser language settings or by modifying the URL parameter sap-language. Please note that starting with the 2005 release of SAP S/4HANA Cloud there have been significant changes being introduced for the SAP Fiori Launchpad including SAP Fiori Spaces and Pages. In this blog post, we will see how to change your language settings.

Changing the Language Settings

  • Click on the Me Icon on the top right of your SAP Fiori Launchpad and select Settings

 

  • Navigate to the section Language & Region and select your preferred language

Conclusion

Please note that the other settings (date and time format) currently still need to be changed by the system administrator centrally in the app Maintain Business Users. For other useful settings for your SAP Fiori Launchpad, you should check out the User Experience section in openSAP Microlearning.

Please leave a comment below, if you have any questions.

      Hi Anand,

      is it possible to set a language (e.g. EN) as default for all of the users and prevent them from changing it?

      Hi Tobias,

      unfortuantely as of now there is no possibility to set a default language. The option to prevent users from changing it is available in the app Manage Launchpad Settings (USERSETTINGS_SET_LANGUAGE).

      Best regards,

      Anand

      Hi Anand,

      okay, thanks for your quick reply. I already saw that option, but wondered if I could set a default language before.

      So, in that case if I prevent them from changing, it will stay the language they used during their last login?

      Thanks again and kind regards

      Tobias

      Hi Tobias,

      yes, correct in that case it will take the language maintained before.

      As a side note, if the user has selected another language other than his/her browser settings, things could get a bit tricky if the user clears the cache. The system will automatically pick the browser language.

      Best regards,

      Anand
