You can use to add a Unified Messaging (UM) language pack to a Unified Messaging server. You can manage UM languages on Unified Messaging servers by using the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell administrative interfaces. However, to make a language available in the list on the Settings tab of a UM dial plan, you must first install the appropriate UM language pack on the Unified Messaging server by using the /AddUmLanguagePack command. After you install the appropriate UM language pack, you can view the list of UM language packs by viewing the properties on the UM Settings tab for the Unified Messaging server.


You can't use the .msi files from the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 installation files to install UM language packs. You need to use to install additional UM language packs.

Before You Begin

To perform the following procedures, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and membership in the local Administrators group for the target server.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2010, see Important: Update for Permissions in Exchange 2010.


To use to install a UM language pack

  • At a command prompt, run the following command: /AddUmLanguagePack:<UmLanguagePackName> /s: d:\<MyLocalFolder>

    In the previous command, <UmLanguagePackName> is the name of the UM language pack, for example, fr-FR. For a list of UM languages, see Understanding Unified Messaging Languages.

Administrative permissions are required to manage the computer running Exchange 2010 that has the Unified Messaging server role installed. For more information about the permissions required to perform administrative tasks for Unified Messaging, see Permissions to Manage Unified Messaging Servers.
