SQL Developer Language Settings

Change Oracle SQL Developer language

Occasionally, I have to work on Customer environments where the language is set to something non-ENGLISH.
Here is how to quickly change that unwanted setting on SQL Developer setting:

  1. close SQL Developer
  2. edit the file sqldeveloper.conf found at location sqldeveloperbin by adding the option AddVMOption -Duser.language=en
  3. restart SQL Developer and enjoy!
