Changing the Software Client for macOS Display Language

To set the client's display language:

  1. If you are connected to a PCoIP session, disconnect.
  2. Click the Settings icon at the top of the Software Client for macOS window. Settings button
  3. Click the Language tab in the left sidebar.
  4. Select the language you would like to set from the dropdown menu.

This setting is persistent, and will remain active until changed.

This setting only affects the Software Client for macOS's pre-session interface. It does not change language settings on remote desktops.

Note: In-session menus are not localized

This feature sets the language for the client's pre-session display only. The in-session menu bar is not affected by this change. Support for localization of the in-session menu bar will be added in a future release.

Important: Broker-generated screens are not localized

Multi-factor authentication screens displayed during a login sequence use content provided by an external connection broker. These screens are not localized.

Setting the Language via Command Line

You can also set the Software Client for macOS language by invoking it on the command line and passing a language code as an argument. For details and instructions about this method, see Configuring the PCoIP Client: Language
