udadmin displays the licensed users and devices and releases licenses for specified users and devices.

You can release a license for a user only when the employee is no longer associated with the company or is on an extended leave of absence. You can release licenses for devices only when the devices are out of service.

The udadmin command line help displays usage information only in English, but you can use the command on non-English systems.
