You have now completed the final configuration tasks for a Complete installation of
SharePoint. You server is up and running and ready to be used. You now know how to
install and configure SharePoint manually, from managed accounts to enabling and
configuring services to creating your first web application and site collection. You’ve confirmed
the changes made by SharePoint to the file system, IIS, and SQL. You now know every
account being used and every service running. You are truly ready to master administering
DO YOU SPEAK MY LANGUAGE?
SharePoint Foundation can support sites that use a different language for its menus, settings, object
names, and descriptions. All you have to do is download and install language packs for SharePoint
Foundation, one pack per language. Once a language pack is installed, when you create a site, the
option to use a different language than the default becomes available. An existing site cannot have a
new language applied to it, unfortunately. So, before you create any sites, you might want to install
your language packs first.
To get language packs for SharePoint, go to the Microsoft download center, and search for Language “
Packs for SharePoint Foundation 2010”.
On the download page, be sure to choose the language you want, click Change to commit it (other-
wise, even with the correct word in the field, it will download the default English pack), and then
click the Download button.
Once the file is downloaded to the SharePoint server, just run it (if you have other SharePoint
servers in the farm, install it on the others as well). The language pack will be added so that all sites
created after this point will have the option to choose either the default language or the language
from the pack you installed.
A few caveats: if you happen to be migrating SharePoint from one version to another (or to a
different server) and you are using language packs, install them before you run the configuration wizard
on the new server. Also, if you happen to install Office Web Apps on your server (more about that in
Chapter 16) and want to install language packs after that point, you must use the language packs
for SharePoint Server 2010, not SharePoint Foundation.
Keep in mind that each language pack uses the same file name, unfor tunately. So if you need to use
several, download them to different locations.
