Define message content
The Messages tab warns you when a message type is not defined or is missing content.
Companies configured for more than one language can assign users their preferred language for communication. The xMatters message and response editors allow you to define messages and responses in all the available languages for the company.
Language presentation logic
When you define messages and responses in languages other than the company's default language, they will be presented to a user using the following logical order (based on availability):
- Recipient's preferred language (as defined on their User Profile)
- Site language
- Any language
For example, if a message sender defines content in English and alternative content in French and German, message recipients whose preferred language is French or German will receive content in those languages. Users that have not specified their preferred language will receive the message in their site's default language, if available. If content is not available in the site's default language, the user will receive the message in English.
If your company has multiple versions of a language defined (such as English US, and English UK, and English CDN), these will be treated as different languages in xMatters.
