Default Language by location IP and not user setting varun-d 5/3/12 12:11 AM
Domain Name: dealgobbler.me (Free Ed)

Users Affected: *all newly created accounts*

Problem Description: Our App's account was registered from Dubai, UAE. At initial setup I had set the language to English.

Now, at every account creation the language on my user's Calender and Documents (maybe other apps too) goes back to Arabic and needs to be changed manually. However, their Gmail language is always English.

1. Can it not take the default language selection from the parent account to have it for Calender and Documents.

2. I know there is not much of a solid reason to bring out the language tab, but it could be implemented for first time login or just take the language selection from their Gmail account.


(Fun fact: Local population of UAE is just 13%, from which at least 80% speak English. Rest of the population are expats from India, Philippines, Other Arab Nations, EU, US and UK. Maybe the language can be set to default English after some more research)

Steps to Reproduce: You need to access a new account from the UAE or use an location IP. I will give out the username and password of one test account if required, but till then let's see.
