Language Identifiers

InstallShield 2012 Spring

Throughout the InstallShield interface, you must refer to specific languages by their language identifiers, or LCIDs. The identifier is an integer value that identifies a specific language. The language ID is more commonly given as a hexadecimal value, but you must specify the decimal version for Windows Installer.

The following table shows the LCIDs for all of the supported languages. To learn more about language support, see Run-Time Language Support in InstallShield.

Project: Note that Basic MSI and InstallScript MSI installations use different IDs than InstallScript installations.

Edition: Also note that support for Arabic (Saudi Arabia) and Hebrew is available only in Basic MSI, Merge Module, and Suite/Advanced UI projects in the Premier edition.
