Move language setting from Browser setting to SLX user profile setting

  • Move language setting from Browser setting to SLX user profile setting

Scenario: Customers in Europe want to use one browser to do the following:

  • set their browser to "local" lanaguage, e.g., German >> for genernal web browsing so sites appear in German
  • Log into SLX on same browser and see the "English" SLX translation label set >> as this is the business "language"


if you moved the SLX language to user profile setting (that either be set by Admin or via User preferences panel), then the above scenario would be possible.

Actually, that does make sense. We've found that we have customers who need to do the same thing and modifying the browser each time is inconvenient. Is there any reason why this couldn't be done ? Rather than, currently, relying on the actual browser config. I seem to recall that SageCRM used to do this quite effectively.

Agree - makes a LOT of sense.. would be great to get this into 8.1 - and maybe a "fix" for 8.0 and 754?

This option would really make sence for some customers. especially, if they want to use the portal only in english.

I also agree with Duncan's view.  Browser settings also affect the way dates are displayed in UI. It should be based on user profile settings and not on browsers settings.

What kind of UI experience are customers looking for? Would this be at login or an Option after login? Do y'all have any good/better/best scenarios for implementation?


How do customers who would benefit from this currently use the system?

This would also get around the iPad / IPhone issue when viewing the main SLX Web Client. At present the only 2 English Locales you can chose is en-us or en-uk. Hence we either get funny dates or funny currency Smiley Happy
