Set the default language on a dial plan


Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-22

You can set the default language for a Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan. Each dial plan you create will initially use English (en-US) as the default language. The English (en-US) language pack is installed on all versions of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 and can't be removed.

If you want to select another language as the default language, for example, German (de-DE), you must first download the German UM language pack .exe file from Exchange Server 2013 UM Language Packs and install that language pack on the Mailbox server by using the UMLanguagePack.de-de.exe installation file. After you've installed the language pack, you can set the default language to a language other than English (en-US) on your UM dial plans.

For additional tasks related to UM languages, see UM languages, prompts, and greetings procedures.

  • Estimated time to complete: Less than 1 minute.
