  • Change language of Windows domain

    Hi All,

    I have inherited a Windows 2003 domain that was setup in French so all the admin groups and builtin groups are spelled in French...this is cauing a massive headache for me as I can't read French! and I am use to using things like Domain Admins, Domain users which don't exist.

    Does anyone know how I can change the language on the domain/forest?

    thanks in advance for your time.
    Raj.

      To give an actual response
      The easiest way (IMHO) would be to do a translation table -- there is a relatively small number of built in groups and some "administrateurs" need no translation

      Having said that, check out the section on display-specifiers here:
      http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/...ory-s-gui.aspx
      it suggests you can change the locale

      Make sure you have everything backed up first!!!!
