Controlling the language that Crystal Report uses

We have several customers where Spanish is the primary language. I would like to be able to "program" crystal so that for these customers they receive reports in Spanish as opposed to English.

Can this be done ?

    Hi Lloyd,

    CR can't translate data. So, the actual data in Spanish needs to come from the datasource.

    For the column labels, you could create formulae based on the ContentLocale().

    You can adjust the Locale for the reports though. Click on View and then select Preferred Viewing Locale...

    It will adjust the Viewers context language but as Abhilash indicated CR will not translate data into any language. You can then send those reports to them...

    What does "adjust the viewers context language" do if the data in the report itself doesn't get translated ?
