The Self Service Portal installation package includes several language packs that will allow the SSP customer to choose a language when accessing the Self Service Portal. In addition to text resources, each language pack includes the default regional date, time, and number formats.
The Web Configuration tool prompts you to choose which language packs to install and set the default language. When the Self Service Portal is installed and configured, the SSP customer will be able to select the interface language on the Profile page. The selected language will also assign the default settings to the date, time, and number formats. However, the user will always have the option to change the formats as needed, regardless of the selected interface language and installed language packs.
NOTE: When multiple language packs are configured for the SSP, a user browser location does not match to any of the installed languages, and a user does not have a specific language configured in his profile (first connect), the default language will be applied.
NOTE: The currency symbol that the SSP uses to display currency values does not depend on the interface language. For details, see About Currency Format.
INFO: For details about user profiles, see About User Profiles in the Self Service Portal.
