For the meeting invitation generated by Teams Meeting add-in in Outlook, we need to be able to select the invitation language. Outlook is configured in one language but it doesn't mean that all my meetings in Teams will be in that language and that others can read my default language. (At least Skype for Business had an option to use Outlook's language or optionally English)
Thanks for providing feedback on this issue. The work is officially on the backlog now. We’ll update when we have more details to share.
At the very beginning of my Teams utilization, I had been able to get an invite in English and this is the reason why I preferred Tems to Zoom. This differenciator has gone, I might follow !
The fact that we work with users of different national languages on a daily basis makes this an urgent matter.

While we wait for your platform to support the rest of the world (who's default language is NOT US English) you make us - your people who support your platform look STUPID.. to our users and management team.. who regularly ask... why is the spelling wrong when automatically genearating the details to join a meeting. gee.. thanks.

When this is going to be available ? it is a must have.

When this is on the backlog for 18 Month now, is there perhaps only one developer at Microsoft working on this backlog?
I totaly agree. The possibility to chose language for the meeting invitation is vital and should be implemented asap.
Please when is it expected to make a change to Teams so that the enduser can make the multible language selection for Teams invitation?

I see this issue is on the backlog since JAN 2020 and I don't see a resolution. How will we be notified anything has been fixed? Does anyone know of a work-around?
Maybe you can make it an option in the Administrator part of the MS Teams tenat. The company can select the languages they prefer from a list. The users will get an invitation in outlook with company supported languages.
It would be better that the end user is in control for selection the languages but that is maybe more difficult to program because you have not all language packs installed on a PC/laptop.
I hope we, as user community, can see this change before July 2021. We are waiting already serval years now, it is time to take action.
Thanks in advance MS, keep up the good work.
The work is supposed to be in the backlog since January 2020, but nothing has changed.
I'm working in 3 different languages and I already experienced issues with non-English speaking people. How is it that Microsoft has not yet understood that with globalization, you need to be able to interact with people from different countries.
Not everyone understand the followings here below, especially when you are stressed because it's conference time and you are late trying to connect.

Agree: ability to chose language on demand is very important!
Ablility to chose or select on demand the message /invitation language is MANDATORY.
Teams is used all over the world and invitation is the what attendees will have to connect... if they don't undersdtand how to connect it is a shame.
I can't understand that is not implemented yet.

This a must have feature, and should not require much effort to implement it.
As a somehow working hack: When Outlook is used in a non English language, the Outlook Teams add in language DLL folder can be temporarily renamed, Outlook restarted and new invitation created (needs to be done twice, somehow the 1st invitation will be in the previous language, must be some caching there). This will result an English language Teams meeting invitation.
we absolutely need this feature ASAP. Especially for countries like Canada, and all other countries with with more than one official languages. This is a must that might have been implemented right out of the box. I don't understand why this feature is still not...
The option was available in Microsoft Lync 2010 (old version Team).

Such a basic thing. Please fix asap!
Still no news on this? It is really frustrating having to change all of our Office apps into our language so that the meeting invite is sent in English.
I think, for most of us, it would be enough only with having the option of sending the invitation in English, apart from our main languange
Any updates? that feature was there with the skype business add-on before switching to Teams.. Thanks!
Any news about this? We do experiencing some issues with the language while non francophone people get the invitation. Thank you,

Also asking. Of course if converted automatically in respect of the receiver's language would be much better, but still at least possibility to choose from preinstall languages is fine. Thank you.
