[UWP]Targeted dashboard notification only sent in English RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just set up a push notification in English and German language in the Dev dashboard and sent it to my app users. Although I have a german phone and PC, I received the notification in English on both devices - why? I entered the notification by pasting the XML directly and not manually selecting the notification elements.

    Also, I got some kind of warning before sending the notification saying that the German notification will be autotranslated - see below.

    Edit: Also, when I try to save a notification draft with a German translation, the next time I open it the language is either removed completely or it is set back to the English text.

  • Hi T. Partl,

    I could reproduce the issue (show English) on my German PC with German language selected in Dev Center. I will report this issue. Thanks for your feedback.

  • Hi David,

    thanks for your response. Would be very happy about any updates on this (esp. a fix). Really makes me wonder how the option to have multilingual notifications is present, although obviously not working :)
