Language Preferences

The Language Preferences is used to select a default language for users. Additionally, administrators can choose whether users are able to change the language in which their portal is displayed.

To manage Language Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Core Preferences > Languages.

Default Language

From the drop-down menu, select the default language for the portal or organizational unit (OU).

Allow Users to Change Language

Select this option to allow users to change their portal language. When enabled, users can change their display language from the Preferences tab within My Account. See My Account - Preferences - Settings.

Available Languages

A list of all available languages is available within Online Help. See Globalization Overview.

Overwrite Settings

Choose whether to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you choose to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings will be updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.

A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.

An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.
