Using the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer with Cisco CallManager 4.0(1)sr2
Purpose of the Document
Intended for the system administrator, this document provides installation procedures for the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer, which is used with Cisco CallManager and other Cisco IP telephony products that support languages other than English (United States) and network tones/cadences for countries other than the United States. This document also provides a description of user and network locales, integration/migration considerations, pre-installation tasks, and an overview of how the locale installer works.
Cisco provides locale-specific versions of the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer on www.cisco.com. Installed by the system administrator, the locale installer allows the user to view/receive the chosen translated text or tones, if applicable, when a user works with supported interfaces.
Defining User Locales
User locale files provide translated text and voice prompts, if available, for phone displays, user applications, and user web pages in the locale that the user chooses. User-only locale installers exist on cisco.com.
Defining Network Locales
Network locale files provide country-specific phone tones and gateway tones, if available. Network-only locale installers exist on cisco.com.
Cisco may combine multiple network locales in a single locale installer.
Defining Combined Locales
The Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer combines user locales and network locales in a single web downloaded file, when applicable.
Note The Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS) or Cisco-approved, customer-provided server can support multiple locales. Installing multiple locale installers ensures that the user can choose from a multitude of locales.
Changes do not take effect until you reboot every server in the cluster. Cisco strongly recommends that you do not reboot the servers until you have installed all locales on all servers in the cluster. Minimize call-processing interruptions by rebooting the servers after regular business hours.
Supported Cisco IP Telephony Products
Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installers exist for the following Cisco IP telephony products, as indicated in Table 1.
Table 1 Supported Cisco IP Telephony Products

Cisco Tool for Auto-Registered Phones Support (TAPS)
User locales that provide localized voice prompts
After you install the locales on the server, you do not need to reboot the Cisco Customer Response Solutions (CRS) server.
If voice prompts appear in English_United_States after the installation of the locale installer, see the "Troubleshooting" section.
Cisco CallManager User Option pages
From these pages, the user can choose the locale that displays on the web pages.
Cisco CallManager Administration User pages
See the "Troubleshooting" section for caveats about these pages.
Cisco CallManager Attendant Console 1.3(1)
The attendant chooses the locale from the attendant console login window. An error message displays if the locale does not exist on the Cisco CallManager server. The attendant console defaults to English if the locale does not exist.
After you upgrade the servers to Cisco CallManager 4.0(1)sr2, you must reinstall the attendant console plugin on the attendant console PC. Only Cisco CallManager Attendant Console 1.3(1) and later releases work with the locale installer.
Cisco IP Manager Assistant (console GUI)
Be aware that the Manager may want to use a different locale than the Assistant uses.
You choose the locale in the Cisco CallManager Administration User pages.
For more information on how to set the locale on these pages, refer to the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide.
Cisco CDR Analysis and Reporting (CAR)
User locales provide localized versions of end-user reports and the end-user graphical user interface (GUI).
CAR only supports the English character set, also known as ISO-Latin1 or ISO-8859-1; for example, United States and Western European languages.
To configure the user locale for the CAR user, the administrator browses into a server that runs Cisco CallManager Administration and chooses the User Locale from the User Configuration window.
If the administrator does not configure the user locale for the CAR user, the CAR user can choose the locale in the Cisco IP User Option pages. The CAR user clicks the link, Change the Locale for the device profile(s) and these web pages, and then chooses the locale.
When the user browses into the server to view reports and the GUI in locales other than English_United_States, the user must enter a user name and password that has the appropriate privileges (not administrative privileges).
Cisco ATA 186 Analog Telephone Adaptor
To configure the tone, the administrator browses to a server that runs Cisco CallManager Administration and chooses the network locale from the phone configuration window.
1 The administrator may choose the user locale in the Phone Configuration window of Cisco CallManager Administration. When the phone resets, the most recent selection by the administrator or user determines which locale displays on the phone; no order of precedence exists for the selection.
2 Network locales exist for the following gateways: Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series, Cisco 7600 Series Communication Media Module, Cisco Catalyst 4224 Access Gateway Switch, Cisco Catalyst 4000 Series, Cisco Catalyst 6000 8 Port Voice E1 and Services Module, Cisco Catalyst 6000 8 Port Voice T1 and Services Module, Cisco Catalyst 6000 24 Port FXS Analog Interface Module, Cisco Catalyst 6000 24 Port FXO Analog Interface Module, Cisco Voice Gateway 200, Cisco 2610, Cisco 2611, Cisco 2612, Cisco 2620, Cisco 2613, Cisco 2621, Cisco 2650, Cisco 2651, Cisco 2620XM, Cisco 2621XM, Cisco 2650XM, Cisco 2651XM, Cisco 2610XM, Cisco 2611XM, Cisco 2691, Cisco 3640, Cisco 3640A, Cisco 3620, Cisco 3660, Cisco 3725, Cisco 3745, Cisco 1700, Cisco 1760, and Cisco 1751.
About Cisco Java Telephony Application Programming Interface (JTAPI) and Cisco Telephony Service Provider (TSP)
Cisco JTAPI and Cisco TSP do not require that you download the locale installer to obtain locales. The locales automatically exist in the application. When you install the application, you choose the locale in which you want to view the installation. If you want to use additional locales or upgrade current locales, you must obtain an updated version of the application and install the application again.
The Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer 4.0(1) supports Cisco CallManager Release 4.0(1)sr2. For more integration and migration information, review Table 2.
Table 2 Integration Considerations
Version of Cisco IP Telephony Application Considerations Cisco CallManager
Upgrade from older version to 4.0(1)sr2
All existing locales in Cisco CallManager after Release 3.2 migrate when you upgrade to Cisco CallManager Release 4.0(1)sr2. However, new phrases and voice prompts display only in English_United_States until you install the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer(s) on every server in the cluster.
The end-user graphical user interface (GUI) for new Cisco IP telephony products displays in English_United_States until you download the locale installer on every server in the cluster and choose the locale through Cisco CallManager Administration, if necessary. To determine whether you choose the locale through Cisco CallManager Administration, refer to the product documentation.
Each installation of the locale installer overwrites the existing installation as though you installed it for the first time.
New installation of 4.0(1)sr2
When you install Cisco CallManager, only the English_United_States user and the network locale install on the servers in the cluster.
To obtain locales other than English_United_States, you must install the Cisco IP Telephony Locale Installer on every server in the cluster.
See the "Troubleshooting" section when phrases and voice prompts display in English_United_States after the installation of the locale installer.
