While I was born in the United States, my father is from Costa Rica and it was always a little weird being the only Carlos Chacón that didn’t speak Spanish–especially because I am the oldest on my dad’s side. Luckily the rebellion of my youth didn’t entirely destroy my opportunity to learn Spanish as I spent two years in the Provincia de Buenos Aires (Buenos Aires Province) of Argentina as missionary for my church in the late 90′s. !Aguante Lanus!
I have a goal in 2013 to start making presentations in Spanish and until now, never had a need to install SQL Server in anything but English. Written translations are a bit tricky, but didn’t give two seconds thought to the SQL Install untill I came across this . . .
My first presentation will hopefully be in Costa Rica this April at a SQL Saturday so I had set all my language/local settings to there. Turns out, SQL Server en Español want Spanish from the motherland-Spain. Setting the language to show option and the region option to Spain did the trick. Now on to translate my slide decks . . . .
