How to Localize your Meeting Room 365 Display (Office 365 & Google Workspace)

Customize language, time format, and other options

i18n options applied, custom translation file & 24-hour date and time formats. French, sourced from Google Translate, for testing & demonstration purposes only.

We build meeting room display software specifically for the 150 million users in the Office 365, G Suite, and Exchange ecosystems. Our system offers flexibility to work on any tablet system, from inexpensive Fire Tablets (from $29 each, mounted!), to premium tablets (we currently recommend the iPad Mini with Retina display, and the Heckler secure locking stainless-steel mount).

This guide covers localization and customization options for international clients (now over half of our user base!)

If you’re interested in seeing a general guide for tablet provisioning and configuration, see one of the guides below.

Customizing your Language

We now support pre-built language files (contributed by other user and sourced through paid translation services). Simply select your language (if available) from the localization tab of your display's configuration editor.

If your language is not supported, or you would like to modify these translation strings, you can continue reading the guide below, which is still how custom i18n files operate with Meeting Room 365.

Custom i18n Files

i18n file customization lets you update the strings displayed on your meeting room display. You can download an example i18n file (English), and use it to make your desired changes. Then, paste the result in your display configuration to see changes in real time.

This allows you to modify any of the strings visible in the display app.

Examples and Existing Translations

We have put together a repository to consolidate translations as they are requested or contributed.

  • RTL support requires some custom CSS on our end & has not yet been attempted. Contact support if you would like to try it out!

Customize Time Format

Time format customization allows you to switch to a 24-hour date and time format.

If you have any questions, please let us know!
