Language Substitution

If you want to generate and export document reports from Enterprise Architect in languages or dialects other than US English, you can customize the codepage, default language ID and character set that the system uses when generating the documentation. This makes it much easier to generate documentation appropriate to your country or location.

Notes

If you want to generate reports in a language that requires Unicode support, please note that Enterprise Architect .EAP files default to using JET 3.5 as the database engine, which does not support Unicode character sets (see the Getting Started > Basics topic) ; to provide Unicode support in your project, either upsize to a DBMS repository or set JET 4.0 as the database engine, and download a copy of the Jet 4.0 EABase model from the Sparx Systems website and do an EAP to EAP transfer of your model into the Jet 4.0 file
The codes that you select remain set for all reports you generate, until such time as you specifically change them again
You can transport these language tag definitions between models, using the Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options
