2Adaptive Planning partners translate into Dutch. There may be discrepancies in the way text is presented or areas of the application where translated text is unavailable.

All text in the user interface is displayed in the user's language. Numbers and dates on sheets and reports are displayed in the appropriate format for the user's locale and users can enter, store, and display data in their language. Users can enter textual data in any language, including accented characters and ideographic characters (such as in Chinese and Japanese). All entered text will be displayed correctly.

Microsoft Semi-Annual Channel

We recommend using the Microsoft Semi-Annual Channel for template reports, Excel Interface for Planning, and OfficeConnect which require using Microsoft Excel. Microsoft recommends the Semi-Annual Channel for "users and/or organizations that have a significant number of line-of-business applications, add-ins, and/or macros that need to be tested with each release."
