How can I change the language of GlobalProtect agent?

L1 Bithead

Dear all,

GlobalProtect agent will select it's language automatically after version 2.0.0, sometimes customer want to use the specific language, e.g. English, how can I do? If anyone know that, please share me your experience, many thanks,

Did we have the option to select a language during the install prior to that version? I am unsure.


According to technical specifications, we support Spanish, French, German, Chinese and Japanese. Change the language settings on the computer's OS and then logout/login. The client will show us the selected language.



I am looking into this.

I have confirmed that if we change the OS language, GlobalProtect will also reflect the selected language.

In Windows 7, we can choose another display language under control panel. This is found under 'Change Display Language'.

If you select one of the support languages, you can apply the change, logout/login and GlobalProtect client will also reflect this change.

mivaldi mentioned that this also worked for Mac OSX.


Please see my first reply for the list of supported languages. I also want to add that language packs for Windows 7 are included in specific system updates. If you do not have these updates, then the other language packs may not be available.

There will be a document coming out for this shortly.

I've written KB Changing GlobalProtect Client Language

It's currently under review, and will be published once it's approved.

Hi, thanks for your kindly share, it's a nice workaround.

Hi mivaldi,

I cannot open your link because my account's permission is not match, I don't know why.



You won't be able to open the link until the review process is complete and the document is published. It will take up to a week. It will eventually become available. There isn't more information than what mmmccorkle already shared for Windows. I also cover how to change language on all other supported GlobalProtect platforms.

Got it, thanks so much. Smiley Happy
