How to change the language displayed on the Tableau Registration dialog
To change the Tableau user interface language before completing registration, carry out the following steps: 1. As an administrator on the computer running Tableau Desktop, make a backup of the registry file before you make any changes to it.
2. In Registry Editor, under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tableau\Tableau <version>\Settings, modify the value data for LanguageCode to the desired UI language:
For British English: en_GB-EU
For American English: en_US-US
3. Start Tableau Desktop. The UI language should reflect the value data entered in Step 2.
When you first run Tableau, it recognizes your computer (Windows) locale and uses the appropriate language if it is supported.
