English (United States) is the default language used by the tool UI. A base translation of the other languages is provided (see Localization Preferences). You can use the localization preferences as an environment to translate the other languages listed in the Languages tab.

Note: For devices with a Local Controller Display, work on and save the application CAF in the desired language in the tool UI, and then transfer the CAF to the device so that its Local Controller Display screen updates with the specified language. The Local Controller Display screen does not support non-ASCII characters (for example, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian).

See Setting Localization Preferences.
