As mentioned in our recent 0.8.2 post, Dynamo has now been localized to twelve languages, the same languages supported by Revit. If you are using Dynamo for Revit, Dynamo will automatically match the Revit localization. (Unfortunately, Dynamo Studio is not localized at this time.)

FrenchRevit But, what if you want to use Dynamo standalone (aka Sandbox) in French or Spanish or any of the other languages? Below are step-by-step instructions to help you change the language for Dynamo standalone:

  1. Create a Desktop Shortcut for Dynamo
  2. Right-click on the shortcut to bring up properties
  3. Edit the Target like this: “C:\Program Files\Dynamo 0.8\DynamoSandbox.exe” /L “fr-FR” (or /L “en-US” or /L “es-ES” or /L “ja-JP” or whatever language you want)
  4. Hit apply and enjoy. You now have a localized version of Dynamo.
