Step 3. Use other Languages

You will perform these steps if the LANSA Client tutorials are to be used in a multilingual environment.

Note: If you are not using the multilingual features of LANSA Client, then you do not have to add any other languages.

Although you specified YES for Multilingual Support, it is not fully implemented until you define a language. Before you import you must define languages by performing these steps.

1.  From the Housekeeping Menu, select the Change partition being worked with option. The Systems Partitions screen is displayed with a list of the existing partitions.

2.  From the System Partitions list, select the partition you wish to work with (in this case LCX) and press Enter. The Housekeeping Menu will be displayed.

3.  Choose the Work with partition multilingual attributes option from the Housekeeping Menu. The Multilingual Partition Languages screen, similar to this example, will be displayed, no languages are yet available:
