How to preview a report in a different locale
Figure 20‑6 shows Preferences as it appears in BIRT Report Designer. If you are using BIRT RCP Report Designer, Preferences displays only report design options and not the Eclipse options.
General preferences in BIRT Report Designer
On the left side of the dialog, expand Report Design, then choose Preview. The preview properties appear, as shown in
Preview preferences in BIRT Report Designer
In Choose your locale, select a locale in which to preview your reports, then choose OK. The locale that you select applies only to previewed reports. It does not change the locale that your machine uses, nor does it change the localized text that appears in the report design.
Preview the report. The localized text appears in the language for the locale that you selected.
To preview your report in another language, repeat the previous steps to select a new locale.
