    Description

      In reference to GitHub issue #205

      Reported as:

      According to the BBB documentation and according to my tests, the BBB UI language is chosen based on the preferred browser language.

      For the Moodle integration of BBB, I would like to propose to pick the BBB UI language based on the Moodle user profile language instead.

      This will help users who are working on a computer which does not have their main language as browser language set, but who have set the right language in their Moodle user profile.

      As always, this should be configurable with an admin setting to support the existing as well as the new behaviour.

      Development notes:

      As it is right now, the BBB API does not support language overriding. See GitHub Issue #10085

      Once that is implemented this new feature would be tribial as we would only need to pass a lang parameter on join.
