About the multi-locale feature

Unica Campaign supports multiple languages and locales for a single installation. Unica Campaign has a default language and locale which is set during installation, but you can optionally set an individual locale preference for each user in Unica.

Setting a user's locale preference is optional. Unless a preferred locale is set explicitly in Unica for a user, there is no "preferred" locale at the user level, and when that user logs in, Unica Campaign uses the suite-level locale set in Unica.

When a preferred locale is explicitly set for a user, this preference overrides the suite-level setting, and when this user logs in to Unica Campaign, the user interface appears in the user's preferred language and locale. This setting applies until the session ends (that is, when the user logs out). Thus, the multi-locale feature allows multiple users to log in to Unica Campaign and work simultaneously, each in their preferred language and locale. For details about setting user locale preferences in Unica, see the Unica Platform Administrator's Guide.

To configure your system for multi-locale functionality, see Configuring Unica Campaign for multiple locales. You complete the tasks in that section after configuring Unica Campaign for a non-ASCII language or non-US locale.

Important: If you use the multi-locale feature, you should not use date formats containing 3-letter months (MMM), %b (abbreviated month name), or %B (full month name). Instead, use a delimited or fixed format with a numeric value for the month.
