Hi, 

Is it possible to select language on Mac OS EPS E84.30 (it seems there is no language settings)

 

Thank you.

I currently have an open SR# with TAC for this issue ! There are the same language ressources included as in OS X Endpoint Security VNP client, and the included help explains that language can be selected in RA VPN > Advanced > Manage Settings - which is untrue😎. I will update this post after i receive news from CP !

Look at the Manage Settings on EPS client and ES VPN client:

We are a step further now! R&D has suggested that language selection is made automatically based on OS language settings. In fact, english is hard-coded as the only available language - we can see that in the app package itself. See the following screenshot with iTunes on the left, showing only a part of the language folders <lang>.lproj inside the app, and EPS client with no language folders:

We have received an official statement from CP:

 

  • The OS X Endpoint Security Client (Full-Suite managed client) supported interface language is English only.
  • Currently, there is no plan to add support for additional interface languages.
  • What you see in the Help link is for the VPN Standalone client only.

So only OS X Enterprise VPN client users can select one of 10 languages for the GUI.

I have created an RFE (https://rfe.checkpoint.com/rfe/rfe.htm) and would ask all users that need more languages in OS X EPS to do the same 😎
