Choose supported languages

Within a flow’s general configuration, you can configure supported languages. Architect lists the names of supported languages in audio-related forms, so that you can select a particular language for playback or recording of a prompt. For more information about adding a supported language, see Add a supported language to a flow.

Under Settings, click Supported Languages

Name Description and use

Add Language

Add the languages you want to support within the flow. When you select a supported language, Architect returns a message when it does not support runtime data playback or TTS playback for the selected language. Valid languages include IETF region subtags, for example: (en-US).


Click the language you want to select as the default language for the flow.

Note: If an interaction does not have a set language, then Architect uses the default language for the flow. For example, Architect transfers an interaction from one flow to another, and you set the language in Flow 1 but not in Flow 2. When Architect transfers the interaction from Flow 1 to Flow 2 and Flow 2 supports the language set in Flow 1, then Flow 2 defaults to that language.
