Re: Language Pack for Fortify SCA/WebInspect

  • SCA - Yes, rulepacks are localized for: English, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Spanish.  (Note that I corrected this item after my initial post.)
  • WebInspect - No custom language packs (see below)
  • SSC is not localized yet.
  • Fortify On Demand (SaaS) - No packs to load, but does have localized UI's available

WebInspect does come in these localized installations, but has nothing the user may add-on:  English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (two), Spanish.  All of the product documentation appears to be in English or Japanese only, with some staff-generated copies in Spanish here and there.

The WebInspect Report Details shown in the vulnerability descriptions come from language-specific SecureBase files, and these translations lag behind the actual check updates.  The English SecureBase is the primary, and the content in the others are updated after-the-fact.  Some Reports may show the translated content for the Vulnerability Details, but the other portions of the Report will remain in English.


Separately, despite the language of your particular WebInspect installation, there are scan settings for handling targeted web sites that use specialized language/character sets.  These may be enabled under the Default Scan Settings > Attack Expressions panel.
