How do I set the language for an item?

If you want system messages in a Conversation or wall to appear in a language other than the default language, you can change the language setting. The language setting affects all members' views of the Conversation or wall.

Any system messages posted after you change the language will appear in the new language. System messages that were there before the language change, however, remain in the language that was in place when they were posted. Messages and files posted to the Conversation or wall are unaffected; that is, they appear in the language they were written in.

To change the language setting for an item:

  1. Open the item.

  2. Click More Conversation Options icon, then select Set Language.

  3. Select the language you want.

Note: The language used for field labels, button labels, banner headings, and so on, is determined by your preferences in the full view of Oracle Social Network. For more information, see How do I change my preferences?
