    Dear aatjan,

    I am not sure I got you right but in the asterisk I use, we have wrote an IVR script that is not in english. All I do is to specify the language in the dial plan in the extensions.conf. For example:

    exten => 1234,1,Set(LANGUAGE()=fr)

    Of course, before that I create a directory "fr" under "sounds" directory and I put the sounds there (default path: /var/lib/asterisk/sounds).

    Regarding the codec type, you can specify the codecs in sip.conf under "general" part. For example:

    disallow all
    allow ulaw
    allow alaw

    I hope I helped.

    Hi, I see indeed in the sounds directory an (eg) es directory. I see also other subdirectorys (eg.pb***) these directories must be cpied under the language directory?
