7.1 YaST Language

To change the language of YaST, select System > Language Selection in the YaST Control Center. Choose a language, exit the YaST Control Center, log out of the system, then log in again. The next time you start YaST, the new language setting is used. This also changes the language for the entire system.

If you need work in a different language but do not want to change the system language setting, you can temporarily change the LANG variable. To do so, export LANG with your preferred language. For example, for English, enter the command:

export LANG="en_US"; yast2

This command changes the LANG setting only in your current session. The language setting of other users and your other sessions, like terminal windows, remains unchanged.

If you run YaST remotely over SSH, YaST uses the language settings of your local system.
