Configure the Default Language on a UM Dial Plan

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can configure a Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan with a default language. Each dial plan and auto attendant you create will use English (en-US) as the default language. The English (en-US) language pack is installed by default on all versions of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and can't be removed.

If you want to select another language, such as German (de-DE), you must first download the German UM language pack .exe file from Exchange Server 2010 UM Language Packs and install the UM language pack on the UM server using the executable (UMLanguagePack.de-de.exe) installation file. After you've installed the UM language pack, you can then set the default language to a language other than English (en-US) on UM dial plans and UM auto attendants.
