You can configure Cisco Unified
Communications Manager and IM and
Presence Service to support multiple languages. There is no
limit to the number of supported languages you can install.
Cisco provides locale-specific versions of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale
Installer and the IM and Presence
Service 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.
For upgrades of Cisco Unified Communications Manager or the IM
& Presence Service, you must install locales after you have
completed all of your upgrades and migrations. For upgrades, you
must reinstall any locales that you are using, with the exception
of US-English, which is installed by default. Install the latest
version of the locales that match the major.minor version number of
your Cisco Unified Communications Manager node or IM and Presence
Install locales after you have installed Cisco Unified Communications Manager on
every node in the cluster and have set up the database. If you want
to install specific locales on IM and
Presence Service nodes, you must first install the Cisco Unified Communications Manager locale
file for the same country on the Cisco
Unified Communications Manager cluster.
Use the information in the following sections to install locales
on Cisco Unified Communications
Manager nodes and on IM and Presence
Service nodes after you complete the software upgrade.
Network locale files provide country-specific files for various network items, including phone tones, annunciators, and gateway tones. The combined network locale file uses the following naming convention:
Cisco may combine multiple network locales in a single locale
You can install locale files from either a
local or a remote source by using the same process for installing
software upgrades. You can install more than one locale file on
each node in the cluster. Changes do not take effect until you
reboot every node in the cluster. Cisco strongly recommends that
you do not reboot the nodes until you have installed all locales on
all nodes in the cluster. Minimize call-processing interruptions by
rebooting the nodes after regular business hours.
