MathWorks® provides localized versions of MATLAB® for selected non-English platforms. For these products only, you can choose the language in which the MATLAB desktop appears. Desktop items (such as dialog boxes, button names, and menu items) and error and warning messages appear in the language that you select. For information about this preference, see the Desktop language (selected non-English systems only) option in the General Preferences panel. If you change the preference, the change applies only to the MATLAB desktop.
Most desktop elements and Apps use the language selected in the Desktop language preference. However, system dialog messages, such as file selectors or color pickers, use the operating system display language.
