Specifying Languages for Users

The language setting in each user group or user profile affects these items:

Language used in email notifications received by the user.

Language used after signing in to the web user portal, from which users schedule, find, and attend meetings.

Voice prompt language heard by the user after successful authentication.

During active meetings, however, voice prompts heard by all meeting participants use the meeting language. If the meeting scheduler does not specify the meeting language, the Language configured in the user profile of the meeting owner becomes the meeting language.

Default language used in the web meeting room for meetings that are scheduled by the user.

All meeting participants see the same language used in the web meeting room. By default, scheduled meetings use the language in the user profile of the meeting owner, but a different language can be selected while scheduling the meeting.

Language used in reservationless meetings that are set up by the user.

All reservationless meeting participants see the web meeting room in the language specified in the user profile of the meeting owner. Users cannot select a different language.

Format in which the date appears in the web user portal.

Language that appears on the Cisco Unified IP Phone screen when subscribed to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView.
