Recently I was working with a customer and wanted to display the Office 365 Security & Compliance center in french.
The account language settings were correctly configured to use french:
All Office 365 web applications like Outlook , SharePoint and even the Office 365 Admin Console were correctly displayed in french:
But the Office 365 Security & Compliance center was always displayed in English.
In this case, as this was an account synchronized from a local AD, it is possible to define the user interface language using the attribute preferredLanguage.
So I went directly to the account settings and at the Attribute Editor tab, I’ve added the value as fr-CA:
To obtain a complete list of all the available parameters, take a look at the following site: Codes for the Representation of the Names of Languages
Once done, you can either:
- Wait for the next AAD synchronization cycle to take place or
- Force the synchnization by connecting to your AD Connect Server and run the following command in PowerShell:
Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta
Once the synchronization takes place, try again and now the interface will correctly display in the desired language:
Remember that this change affects all the Office 365 applications.
I hope you find it helpful!
Until next time..
