UNIVERGE BLUE™ SHARE Outlook plugin localization

UNIVERGE BLUE™ SHARE Outlook plugin localization can be displayed in the language of the end-user depending on MS Office locale.

If default locale of MS Office is set to English (US), English (UK), German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Japanese or French translated verbiages are displayed, date format is aligned to particular culture. We use particular list of regions to adjust date formatting: en-US, en-GB, de-DE, it-IT, nl-NL, es-LA, ja-JP, fr-CA. For all other regions we fall back to the one listed.

Notes:

  • If locale  is detected and supported by Outlook plugin, translated verbiages will be displayed.
  • If locale is detected but not supported or not detected, default verbiages in English will be displayed.
