Webcast Localization

What is it?
Webcast Localization is the process of configuring a webcast to support multiple languages where a user logging into a localized webcast will experience it in their selected language. 

When to use it?
Available in Live, Simulive, or On-Demand webcasts.

Supported Configuration

  • Some areas require Supplied Text, provided by the customer, and other areas are controlled by System Text which is auto-translated and not editable.
  • Lobby Experience does not support localization, but a user's language from registration will still carry through and apply to localization settings within the webcast.
  • Localization is not available for the registration page, login pages, or emails, because the user must be logged in in order to know their language selection. Note, if different language registration pages are required, this can be supported with separate pages/links per language, not via localization, but still pointing to the single webcast.
