3.0 International Support

An internationalized product is an English product that runs correctly on local language versions of the required operating system and required third-party products, and supports local language data for input and output. Internationalized products also support the ability to specify local language conventions for date, time, currency, and number formats.

A translated product (sometimes referred to as a localized product) is an internationalized product that includes local language support for the product's user interface, online help and other documentation including local language default settings for date, time, currency, and number formats.

In addition to the English release of this product, CA supports only those languages listed in the following table.

Chinese (Simplified)

Note: If you run the product in a language environment not listed in the table, you may experience problems.
