Configuring a Base Locale

You can configure Order Management to appear in a base locale, which is based on the combination of language and country. If a base locale isn't specified, the default is English. If a language other than English, French, or German is selected, then English is used as the language, while the numbers, dates, and currency are in the format of the selected locale.

See Configuration Localization.

    This field applies to shipping providers and isn't relevant for localization.
