    Hello Danielle,

    This is very useful content to understand the languages in Support.

    I have a question regarding User's language and Additional Languages could you please help me to understand that.

    As we can see that there are 60+ languages in Setting->Account->Localization BUT those all language are not listed while editing a user's language.

    Is there any reason for that or some steps we need to follow to show all languages in user edit section.

    Example: Suppose we have to set Arabic language(not listed) for a user/agent, how could we achieve that in support?

    Thanks in advance

    Is it possible to set the users language when submitting a ticket via API?

    Hi Ed!

    I'm by no means an API expert, so I'm not sure whether you'd be able to actually do it at the exact time that a ticket is created via API, but there's a User endpointlocale_id, that sets the User's language. So if you can incorporate that into the API call, that should get you taken care of!
