FIM 2010 and FIM 2010 R2 language support

I’ve recently started working with a customer that needs to support a large number of users spread across multiple geographies with multiple languages.  This is a first for me.  I’ve been able to successfully avoid localisation for more than ten years.  Smile

Anyway, as a result I needed to know what languages were supported by FIM R2 and couldn’t find the information –only FIM 2010 information.  I got the information I needed from the PG and thought I’d post it here as a reference.

Self-service password reset (SSPR) QA Gate

For SSPR portals, parameters entered in the AuthN workflow (such as the question text, the message that describes the QA gate constraint, the error text to be displayed when the answer does not meet QA gate constraints) are not localised.  It is the job of the implementer to define multiple QA Gates each with a different set of questions expressed in a different language, within the confines of what characters can be entered into the XOML.  Definitely the subject of a future post…

    Do I need to change the SQL collation setting if user need FIM Portal in non-English language?

    Thanks,
    Mann

    • No, unless you know of a specific constraint within your locale. I use the default SQL collation on an en-GB server for my multinational customers that utilise LPs without any known issues.
