Portal to be displayed as per language chosen

Hi Experts,

We have a requirement, where in the Portal should get displayed in the language chosen by the user from the Language Dropdown(Language Dropdown field is enabled on the Logon Page).

Here are the various cases.

Case 1: If User profile (UME) u2013 language is blank

u2022User does not select any language from the Language dropdown, then the language from the browser will be considered for all Portal pages. In this case, user profile (UME database) will not be updated with any language; still the language will be blank.

Case 2: If User profile (UME) u2013 language is blank

u2022User selects any language from the Language dropdown, then also the language from the browser is getting considered for all Portal pages.

Case 3: If User profile (UME) u2013 language is not blank

u2022User does not select any language from the Language dropdown, the portal pages will be displayed in the language that is already exists in User profile.

Case 4: If User profile (UME) u2013 language is not blank

u2022User does select any language from the Language dropdown, the selected language should get updated in the User Profile (UME) database and Portal pages should get displayed for current session and future sessions in the new language that user selected.

Cases 1, 2 , 3 are coming as expected.

case 4: We want the UME to be updated with the selected Language from the Dropdown and all future

sessions of this user should get displayed in the Language selected, in the previous session.

Kindly provide any suggestions to achieve Case 4.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Ponneswari A.
