    Hi Deborah,

    the language information in the user's profile can be used to inform an application about the preferred language of the user. This information can be forwarded to the service provider via the SAML assertion.

    Yet the user's language in his profile does not determine the language for the UI of IAS itself. The language of the end user UI is controlled via the locale or the browser language setting.

    The section in the docu you quoted points to the UI integration for overlay in an iframe. Yet the IAS user profile is not available in an iframe.

    So for the profile the locale has to be provided via URL parameter and then the UI language should be set accordingly. If not, the UI language is determined via the browser configuration.

    BR, Marko

    I tested to access the user profile now with another browser (chrome) where english is set as language. Then it worked.
