Locale preferences

Use the Locale tab to specify how the UI changes are handled for different locales based on the user's browser settings. 

The following image shows the settings in the Locale tab in the AR System User Preference form:

Locale tab fields

Area nameField NameDescriptionClient
Locale    User Locale

Designates the language displayed on the user's system, in the format language _country, where language is the language code (such as fr for French or en for English), and country is the two-letter country code (such as FR for France or US for United States). Some sample entries are:

  • en_US—English (United States)
  • fr_BE—French (Belgium)
  • fr_CA—French (Canada)
  • zh_HK—Chinese (Hong Kong)
  • zh_CN—Simplified Chinese
  • ja_JP—Japanese (Japan)

This field is clear by default.

Time Zone

Defines the time zone displayed on the user's system. Select a time zone from the menu, for example, Asia/Tokyo, America/New York, or Europe/Paris. Any ICU (International Component for Unicode) format is accepted. This field is clear by default.


When the user and Mid Tier are in different time zones, and you perform an advance search on the Date field, you might get slightly different results.

In this case, we recommend to set the User Preference time zone (where to set it?) so that the Mid Tieruses user's time zone for advance search qualification.

CurrencyThe type of currency to be applied for this locale (for example, USD for United States dollars). If currency is specified here, it overrides the developer-defined Initial Currency Type field property. If this field has a default value, it overrides the User Preference and the Initial Currency Type.Web
