@senfcall Can you enable English as a fallback language in settings of the bbb instance? Currently the instance is always in German and having English as a fallback will be useful to a lot of people. See https://github.com/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton/issues/6757 for how to enable it.
hey @praveen , the majority of our users are German so we unfortunately can not change the fallback to english right now. However, the language detection works pretty well in most cases. Only when you use #senfcall without an account you can run into trouble. If you register an account, you should be fine (https://www.senfcall.de/en/help#account-registration).
Thanks for the tip about creating an account. Do you know if BBB support an option to set language from a URL parameter ? If it allows choosing a language from the interface that can work as well, may be I should file an issue.
It seems like the API does not offer that. However, be reminded, that #senfcall uses its own join mechanism, so there is some text which will always stay german, while #BigBlueButton should detect your browsers language correctly and set the language accordingly.
@praveen also you can change the language in the preferences (three dot menu in the top right corner).
Thanks! With browser language set, BBB detected correct language. Would it be possible to offer English version of the public.senfcall.de room creation page? Also offer English default slides if browser language is set to another language (other than English which may be default even for German users) like Malayalam?
@praveen for now, offering default slides in a different language would exceed our capacities. We will talk about whether we can offer the public room creation page in english.
I have opened an issue with BBB https://github.com/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton/issues/12795
