Locales can now be added or removed by Learning Admins directly within the LMS UI, as long as the locale has not been tied to anything other than users/administrators. Once it is associated with anything else the ability to remove from UI will be non-functional.


How to add a Locale / Language:

  1. Navigate to Learning Administration > References > Manage Labels > Locales > click Add New
