Jetadmin consists of two separate pieces: the software executable
and the language packs. Each language pack consists of the
translated user interface (UI) dialogs (strings, bitmaps, and so on)
for one of the languages that HP
Web Jetadmin supports. The separation of the software executable and
the translated UI dialogs has an important impact on the way HP Web Jetadmin works in a multilingual
You install the software one time on a single server. You choose
which languages you want to provide and install those language

executable can simultaneously service multiple browser sessions in
Each user who will use HP Web
Jetadmin can specify a prioritized list of the languages that he or
she wants to work with in the browser. If a language that HP Web JetAdmin supports is not in the
browser's language list, the user can manually type an entry for
that language and add it to the list.
A multilingual HP Web Jetadmin
provides the following benefits:
- You only have to install the software once without specifying
a language, which means that there is only one machine for you to
- There is only one device cache, which means that you do not
have to spend time keeping multiple caches synchronized.
- There is only one copy of hp Web Jetadmin performing
discoveries instead of multiple copies of HP Web Jetadmin running multiple
discoveries to find the same devices. This means that there is
less network traffic.
- If you have a multilingual workforce - for example, an office
in San Francisco with employees who speak Chinese, Spanish, and
English - each employee can work in the language that they prefer.
- If you have a mobile work force - for example, an employee who
works in Great Britain and speaks English, but travels a lot in
Germany and prefers to work in German - the employee can work in
the preferred language.
