Answer

Due to the limited flash memory size on snom300/320/360/PA1 and snom D120 the devices can store just one (three for the D120) language files. If you want to add more languages to the phone you should provision the list of the available languages and the translation files, here the procedure:

  1. small or individual installations: use the snom language downloads script:
    1. Please note that there are separate language files for the phone language and the language of the web interface:
      1. For Firmware versions 7.1.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      2. For Firmware versions 7.3.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings2.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      3. For Firmware versions 8.2.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings3.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      4. For Firmware versions 8.4.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings_8.4.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      5. For Firmware versions 8.5.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings_8.5.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      6. For Firmware versions 8.6.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings_8.6.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      7. For Firmware versions 8.7.x: copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings_8.7.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      8. For Firmware versions 10.1.10 until 10.1.32 (snom D120 only): copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings_10.1.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
      9. For Firmware versions >= 10.1.33 (snom D120 only): copy the URL "http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings_10.1.33.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field
    2. Press save and reboot the phone.
    3. After bootup several languages are selectable again for phone and web user interface.
    4. On the web user interface you might have to refresh the page after changing the language.
  2. large phone installations: use the new XML file mass deployment structure explained in this presentation (page 28). If only language support is required follow these instructions:
    1. Copy the following files from snom's language downloads folder ( http://downloads.snom.com/config/<FILENAME> - see below ) onto your local web server (choose the appropriate files reflecting the firmware version/ firmware branch that your phones are running):
      1. http://downloads.snom.com/config/settings.xml (--> links to web_lang.xml and gui_lang.xml)
      2. http://downloads.snom.com/config/web_lang.xml (--> links to all desired web user interface languages found in snomlang-X.Y.Z.tgz)
      3. http://downloads.snom.com/config/gui_lang.xml (--> links to all desired phone user interface -GUI - languages found in snomlang-X.Y.Z.tgz)
      4. http://downloads.snom.com/config/snomlang-X.Y.Z.tgz (X.Y=latest FW Version; Z=Revision --> contains all available web/phone user interface XML language files), for example: http://downloads.snom.com/config/snomlang-10.1.33.tgz
    2. Unpack snomlang-X.Y.Z.tgz and change the URLs in settings.xml, gui_lang.xml and web_lang.xml according to your web server's folder structure.
    3. Enter "http://yourwebserver/settings.xml" into your phones Update Settings URL field and proceed as explained in 1.2.
