UM Language Packs

After deployment of Exchange 2007 UM here it was noted that the voice talking back to the users was in US English.  How do you change this to use a different language?  Well, the first thing to do is to go to this link:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/bb330845.aspx

This link will take you to the page where you can download the relevant language pack.  Once downloaded, store the relevant language pack (downloaded as an MSI installer) onto the Exchange 2007 UM server.  Let's assume I've downloaded the UK English (en-GB) language pack and stored it in the D:\UMLanguagePacks folder.  On each server in the UM dial plan, run the following command:

exsetup /AddUmLanguagePack:en-GB /s:d:\UMLanguagePacks

Here's an example of how the output will look when you execute this command on the Exchange server:

Welcome to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Unattended Setup

The following Unified Messaging language packs will be added:

    Um Language Pack for en-GB

Performing Microsoft Exchange Server Prerequisite Check

Configuring Microsoft Exchange Server

    UM Language Pack for (en-GB)     ......................... COMPLETED

The Microsoft Exchange Server setup operation completed successfully.

Once this has been done, run the Exchange Management Console, go to the Organisation object and then the Unified Messaging object underneath it.  On the UM Dial Plans tab, bring up the properties of your dial plan and on the Settings tab change the default language option to reflect your newly installed language pack.  No service restart is required - at least, I never had to!
