CRM Base language migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • The problem we are facing is that we have a on premise Dynamics Dutch CRM 2011 environment with a company that has a Dutch base language. We would like to change the base language to English and migrate to the English version of CRM 2013. I have read on the forum's that its not possible to change a base language once its defined. The only way to move forward is to migrate the data and customizations.

    Where can i find information regarding the migration of the data, i mean its not as simple as migrating the table data to an English company environment?

  • Migrating data can be done through a variety of connectors.

    A free example of this is the Microsoft Dynamics Connector with instance adapter.


    Changing the base language can be done "unsupported" by modifying the XML file. Change the language code in the file.. zip the solution and import it on the new environment.
