You’re probably thinking “that’s not English, what’s going on, where’s my Chrome translate button?” You’re right, it’s not. And why not? Well, if you’re one of the many users of Digium’s phones, and you happen to speak English, you’ve been quite pleased. In fact, the reviews of our D40, D50 and D70 phones have been wonderful. We’re very glad you like them.
But, if you’re one of the many users of Digium’s phones, and you either don’t speak English, or English isn’t your first language; then, while you’ve been pleased, you’ve had a small hole in your heart. Let’s close it.
Users of Twitter might have seen some of the early progress, but firmware release 1.3 is now available for Digium phones. With it comes support for an array of locales, including Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Dutch. These locales affect the languages displayed on the phone, the date and time display, as well as the tones.
DPMA users will find a corresponding new release of DPMA, 1.5.0 (1.5.1-bugfix is already out), that allows for server-side control of the phone’s locale. And, our XML-provisioning users will find a new XML sample for setting the locale on the wiki.
So, have fun, enjoy, and if you find areas for improvement, let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
