Consider the following scenario. You have a SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services project in SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence Development Studio. You define a translation for the Description object of a Key Performance Indicator (KPI). Then, you deploy the project to an instance of SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. In Control Panel, you open Regional and Language Options. Under Standards and formats, you specify the same language that you specify for the translation of the Description object. You try to retrieve the metadata of the Description object. In this scenario, you notice that the metadata always appears in the default language.

How to obtain the latest service pack for SQL Server 2005
You have to restart the computer if the installer must replace files that are being used. To avoid restarting the computer, you must close all SQL Server Analysis Services tools and clients. Additionally, you must stop Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) if the server is configured to provide HTTP access. If SQL Server Analysis Services is installed as a named instance, you must also stop the SQL Server Browser service because the Msmdredir.dll component of the SQL Server Browser service is updated when you install this hotfix.
You do not have to change the registry.
