Dynamics NAV Role Center: Wrong Language In Profile

We had this customer where the role centers/profiles seemed messed up. The language was in swenglish, a combination of both swedish and english.


First I thought this was a another bieffect of cumulative update 8 to Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 were Microsoft screwed and missed and wrote over several local language captions. Affected countries are Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany and perhaps some more. Hopefully they will fix it to cumulative update 12. Anyway, I checked it and this wasn’t the fault so I did what every smart person does. I googled it.  Trying to find some information by googling phrases like:

Wrong language in the ribbon

Profile with wrong language

Role center language problem

But I came up very short. When I investigated the issue further I noticed that the faulty captions couldn’t be changed in either pages or menuitems. I then realised that the language must be like the charts, it is localized and is found in a blob somewhere. I found How to:Export or Import Profiles on msdn. By exporting it to a XML file and open it I could verify that I have found the source to my language problem.

So why did we have faulty language version? I realised that the cronus database we were using didn’t come from a swedish installation but came from our add-on partner which had used a W1 version. Why did they use a W1? Well, it is an international addon and it is always easier to demo and maintain a version in W1 then maintaining it in other languages.

The solution is export all the profiles from a swedish cronus and then import them into the target database. I calculated the profiles to be ~25 so it would take some time to export/import them all since you can only do it one by one. But since I like automation I instead created a tool that exports all the profiles and imports them all at once. If you are interested in having it, comment and I’ll maybe publish the code in a blog post.
