By default, the application user interface displays in English, but you can set it to another language.

To change the language used in the interface for all users, you need to edit the locale parameter in the configuration file.

The supported language parameters are:

  • en-US or en for English.
  • fr-FR or fr for French.
  • ja-JP or ja for Japanese.
  • zh-CN for Chinese.


  1. Open the TDP_Installation_Path/dataprep/config/ configuration file.
  2. Set the value of the dataprep.locale parameter to one of the other supported locales, fr for example, instead of the default en.
  3. Restart the application.


The interface displays in French.
