User Locale

The user locale allows the phone to display text (menu items, soft keys etc.) native to the phone's language. To download locale packages you will first need to register for a login (free, at the time of writing) at open_in_browser www.cisco.com. Locale packages are selected from the Unified Communications Manager Endpoints Locale Installer link when downloading software.

The user locale package is named po-locale-LANGUAGE-VERSION.cop.sgn, the LANGUAGE is the ISO code for your region, eg: en_GB is English (United Kingdom). The name of the directory to download the user locale .jar file from is specified in the <name> element underneath the <userLocale> the element in SEPMAC.cnf.xml.

1. Convert the .cop.sgn to .tar.gz using the stripsgn script.

Depending on the phone model, a different .jar file is used.
