I have a SharePoint Online site that is created with English.

When I try to invite an extern user to the site if something goes wrong the user gets an error message in a different language (NOT English).

What can be causing this?

1 Answer 1


It is possible that an alternate language is configured for the site (see here) and the user has this language set as one of his spoken languages (see here)

  • no. the only language installed on this site collection is English. there are no alternative languages at all. Also the user that gets the errors in a different language is an external user. so it shouldn't matter. Parent is English only. how in the world can somebody that is not from the organisation get error messages in a different language than English is beyond me.
