UMP Language settings

During installation, we set Liferay?s default language based on the system, e.g., if your system is Swiss German, hence the default user?s language would be German.

You can change the configuration in Control Panel later. Each user can change his or her account whenever they want to as well.

UMP defaults to using the default portal setting from UMP's Control Panel, regardless of browser setting. UMP?s system-wide default Language setting can be found at:

Control Panel->Portal Settings->Display Settings->Available Languages.

The 'Default Language' setting will be used for NEW users. Note that users include any new 'Nimsoft users' or 'Account-Contacts', i.e., any new UMP user.

Users can set their own language under "My Account" (click on the userid->My Account->Display Settings). The navigation steps described in this Article applies to UMP version 7.5 or higher.
