Webstarting Sentinel Control Center (SCC) or other apps from a machine with a different language than the Sentinel server results in SCC language being the language of the Sentinel server, not the machine the application was webstarted from.

Language of the webstarted application matches the Sentinel Server language, not the language of the local machine.


To resolve this, launch the sentinel.jnlp file from command line with the following command:

javaws -J-Duser.country=US -J-Duser.language=en (full path to)sentinel.jnlp

This will launch SCC in English instead of the language selected on the Sentinel server.
