Setting the default national language

If you have provided locally translated messages and panels, you can change the default national language used in the Z Data Tools ISPF and batch interfaces.

The language used by Z Data Tools under ISPF depends on the language setting for your ISPF session.

The language used by Z Data Tools for batch processing depends on the LANGUAGE option in HFM0POPT. See Table 1 for the value to specify for LANGUAGE. See LANGUAGE for more information about the LANGUAGE option.

ZDT/CICS also uses the LANGUAGE option in HFM0POPT to determine the language for ISPF panels and messages. If you have provided ZDT/CICS messages and panels in another language, change the setting to that language.
