Changing Language Settings in zSpace STEM Applications

Article last updated:

 

With the Summer 2017 release, zSpace now provides additional language support for our STEM applications. The following article assists users in changing the language settings in the zSpace applications, modifying the keyboard input, and changing the OS Language if necessary.

For systems shipping fall of 2017 and later, these languages may already be pre-installed on the system. For systems shipped prior to this fall 2017, you may need to download the language for support.

To simply use zSpace applications in a different language, you just need to change the language in the application. No other changes are required.

To utilize a specific language keyboard, you will need to enable that setting in the OS.

If you wish for all accounts including the system to display in a completely different language, please follow the instructions on "How to change the language in zSpace applications".

These instructions are specific to Windows 10 and the zSpace 300 with multi-language packs installed.
