We did sign in to an Exchange Admin Center and saw a non-English language. If you are familiar with Exchange Server, you can go through it because you know where every setting is. But it’s easier when you have it in your default language and what you are used to. In our example, we like to have the Exchange Admin Center language in English. In this article, you will learn how to change the Exchange ECP language in two different ways.

The Exchange Admin Center (EAC), also known as Exchange Control Panel (ECP), appears in French.

Change Exchange Admin Center language (ECP) different language

We like to have the Exchange Admin Center in the English language. Let’s look at a couple of ways how to do that.

How to change Exchange Admin Center language

An easy way to change the Exchange Admin Center language is to follow the below steps:

Note: We recommend to set the Exchange Admin Center language in the English language. That’s because if there are any warnings, errors, or anything you like to search for on the internet, you will have much more results in the English language.

The default URL for Exchange Admin Center is:

https://localhost/ecp

Or if you use the hostname:

https://mail.exoip.com/ecp

Change it to the English language and add ?mkt=EN-us at the end of the URL.

https://localhost/ecp?mkt=EN-us

Or as below if you use the hostname.

https://mail.exoip.com/ecp?mkt=EN-us

Bookmark the URL and click on it every time you sign in.
