Configuring Multilingual Support for Cisco Unified Presence


July 5, 2013

If you want to expand your Cisco Unified Presence deployment to support multiple languages, you must configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence to support the user locales that you require. There is no limit to the number of supported languages.

Installing the Locale Installer on Cisco Unified Communications Manager

User locale files provide translated text for user applications and user web pages in the locale that the user chooses. User locales are country-specific.

Before You Begin

Install Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Release 6.x or a higher release) on every server in the cluster before you install the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale Installer.

If you want to use a locale other than English, you must install the appropriate language installers on both Cisco Unified Communications Manager and on Cisco Unified Presence. Ensure the locale installer is installed on every server in the cluster (install on the Publisher server before the Subscriber servers).

User locales should not be set until all appropriate locale installers are loaded on both systems. Users may experience problems if they inadvertently set their user locale after the locale installer is loaded on Cisco Unified Communications Manager but before the locale installer is loaded on Cisco Unified Presence. If issues are reported, we recommend that you notify each user to sign into Cisco Unified Communications Manager user options pages and change their locale from the current setting to English and then back again to the appropriate language. Yo u can also use the BAT tool to synchronize user locales to the appropriate language.

You must restart the servers for the changes to take effect. After you complete all locale installation procedures, restart each server in the cluster. Updates do not occur in the system until you restart all servers in the cluster; services restart after the server reboots.

Installing the Locale Installer on Cisco Unified Presence

Before You Begin

Install the Locale Installer on Cisco Unified Communications Manager. If you want to use a locale other than English, you must install the appropriate language installers on both Cisco Unified Communications Manager and on Cisco Unified Presence.

If your Cisco Unified Presence cluster has more than one node, make sure that the locale installer is installed on every server in the cluster (install on the Publisher server before the Subscriber servers).

User locales should not be set until all appropriate locale installers are loaded on both systems. Users may experience problems if they inadvertently set their user locale after the locale installer is loaded on Cisco Unified Communications Manager but before the locale installer is loaded on Cisco Unified Presence. If issues are reported, we recommend that you notify each user to sign into Cisco Unified Communications Manager user options pages and change their locale from the current setting to English and then back again to the appropriate language. You can also use the BAT tool to synchronize user locales to the appropriate language.

You must restart the server for the changes to take effect. After you complete all locale installation procedures, restart each server in the cluster. Updates do not occur in the system until you restart all servers in the cluster; services restart after the server reboots.
