Configure the Plugin Detail Locale

As an administrator user, use the Plugin Detail Locale tab in Tenable Nessus to choose what language (locale) plugin metadata appears in. This tab configures the language for any plugin metadata that appears in the following user interface and report fields:

  • Synopsis

  • Description

  • Script Name

  • Solution

Tip: English is the default plugin detail locale. You only have to configure the plugin detail locale if you want plugin details to appear in a language that is not English.

Note: This feature is not available for managed scanners and Tenable Nessus Manager.

To configure the plugin detail locale:

  1. In Tenable Nessus, in the top navigation bar, click Settings.

    The About page appears.

  2. Select the Plugin Detail Locale tab.

  3. Select the Enable Plugin Locales checkbox.

  4. Next to the Locales label, select the languages to download. When you select a language, Tenable Nessus adds it to the Default Plugin Detail Locale list.

    You can choose any combination of Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese; English is already available by default.

  5. Select your Default Plugin Detail Locale. The default locale determines what language your plugin details appear in. You can select from any of the languages that you selected in the previous step.

  6. Click Save. Tenable Nessus notifies you that it is downloading your selected language packs.

    Once the download completes, Tenable Nessus applies your default locale selection, and the plugin metadata in the Tenable Nessus user interface and reports show in the selected language.
