How to – Change Rational DOORS Language

When it comes to requirements management, Rational DOORS is one of the best tools I have ever used. I had this DOORS installation on my company laptop which was working/displaying in my own language (Turkish) and I decided to change the language to English. Why? Because I am used to working in English, it is much easier to find “How-To”s in English, and menu items (menu texts) in Turkish does not feel natural/intuitive somehow.

Anyways, I found out that changing the DOORS language was much simpler than I thought. Here is how you can do it:

1-Open the Control Panel
2-Click “System”

3-Click “Advanced system settings”

4-“System Properties” window opens, click “Environment Variables”

5-Click “New…” and add a new User Variable with Variable name:¬†ICULOCALE, Variable value: root values

6-Click OK to apply the changes and close the windows

Hope this helps someone.

Good luck,
Serdar.
