Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite includes support for multiple languages on each logical instance of the software. For example, the 10.1.0 release of Hitachi ID Password Manager includes support for 21 languages. Of these 21, the following are considered "core languages" and customers may deploy any 5 of them at no additional cost.

  • English (en-us)
  • French (fr-fr)
  • Spanish (es-es)
  • Portuguese (Brazil) (pt-br)
  • German (de-de)
  • Japanese (ja-jp)
  • Chinese (simplified) (zh-cn)

The entire Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite user interface supports internationalization. Input and output text are all Unicode (UTF-8) and there is support for both left-to-right and right-to-left text display.

Additional languages are easy to add.

There are three options for Hitachi ID Systems customer to implement non-core languages in their Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite deployment:

  • Purchase a language pack from Hitachi ID at USD 2,500/language.
  • Use one of the two translation UIs built into the software to create and/or edit a language translation.
  • Hire a third party translator to use one of the two above UIs, possibly exposing the relevant URLs to the public Internet, where the translator can access them.

Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite includes two mechanisms for user interface language translation. The first is used for bulk editing of text, to translate it from English into a given language. With this UI, English text is shown in one column and text in the desired language is edited in another column. A second user interface allows a translator to modify the language text of the UI in the context of actually using the application. Hold down the Ctrl key, click on a UI element in a live login session and modify the text in a pop-up window.

Note that technical documentation, intended primarily for the installer and administrator, is currently offered only in English - it is about 3,000 pages and is consequently not economical to localize.

Note: Language pack availability may vary from release to release. For more information about language packs contact your Hitachi ID Account Representative.
