I installed Language Packs for SharePoint Server 2010 from:


On creating a new site collection using PowerShell with "Language" option set to 1034 or any other language code, I get the following error:

New-SPSite : The language is not supported on the server. How do I fix this?

1 Answer 1


I found this on support.microsoft, hope it helps.
P.S: I did not test it.

1.) Open Registry Editor

2.) Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0

3.) Create a new Key under 12.0 called ServerLanguage

4.) Right-click ServerLanguage, select new String value and give it a name of 1033

Note: 1033 is valid for US English. To determine the appropriate language value for other languages, see the following web site: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc824907.aspx

5.) Close the Registry Editor

6.) Re-run the "SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard"

The language is not supported on the server
The language is not supported on the server. 2
