How to change user language in SQL Server Reporting Services


This post will guide us on how to change the language of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) that is included with our SQL Server.

This solution applies either a SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2016, or SQL Server 2017. And it will only affect the user with whom we are connected.

1. Run the Internet Explorer browser.
2. Enter SQL Server reporting Services. It should be something like http://mysqlserver/Reports/.
3. Let’s go to Tools (Alt + X) > “Internet Options”:

SQL Server Reporting Services-go to Internet options

4. The Internet Options window opens. Click on “languages”:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Internet options-languages

5. Now in “Language Preference” click on “Set Language Preferences”:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Internet options-Set Language Preferences

6. The “Language” window on the Control Panel appears. If you don’t see your language here, click on “Add a Language” (otherwise skip to step 9):

SQL Server Reporting Services-Control Panel-language-Add a language

7. In the “Add Languages” window, choose your language and click on “Open”:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Control Panel-language-Select language

8. In the “Regional variants” window, choose the language variant and click on “Add”:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Control Panel-Language-Regional variants

9. Once included the language, click on it and choose the option “Move up” in the options bar:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Control Panel-Language-Move up

10. Already moved the language you want to the first place, close the window:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Control Panel-Language-Moved up

11. Update the Web of SQL Server Reporting Services and you will see that it is in the chosen language:

SQL Server Reporting Services-Home in English
