Prepare for Internationalization

In the following sections we'll review the actions you must take to prepare for internationalization.

Migration Steps

Perform the following tasks to prepare your product for internationalization:

  1. If your product's security profile was created before Q3 2016, an update is required to validate it for use with international AVS endpoints. Click here for step-by-step instructions.

    If your security profile was created in or after Q3 2016 skip to the next step.

  2. Integrate the latest version of the LWA Mobile SDK for Android or iOS. Our guides have been updated and provide instructions to get you started:

  3. Update your client code to support the SetEndpoint directive.

    The SetEndpoint directive instructs a client to change endpoints when the following conditions are met:

    • A user's country/region settings are not supported by the endpoint they have connected to. For example, if a user's current country/region is set to the United Kingdom (UK) in Manage Your Content and Devices and the client connects to the United States (US) endpoint, a SetEndpoint directive will be sent instructing the client to connect to the endpoint that supports the UK.
    • A user changes their country/region settings (or address). For example, if a user connected to the US endpoint changes their current country/region from the US to the UK, a SetEndpoint directive will be sent instructing the client to connect to the endpoint that supports the UK.

  4. Update your client code to support the Settings interface.

    The Settings interface is used to manage Alexa settings on your product. This is required to support language switching on AVS products.

How To Update Your Security Profile

If your security profile was created before Q3 2016, follow these instructions to update it for use with international AVS endpoints.

  1. Login to the Amazon Developer Console.
  2. Navigate to the AVS Dashboard. Locate your product that requires access to international AVS endpoints, and click Edit.
  3. From the left navigation, select Security Profile.
  4. Make sure the security profile you would like to validate for use with international AVS endpoints is selected, then click Edit.
  5. Append International to your Security Profile Description and click Save.
  6. Allow up to 5 minutes for the update to propagate. Now your security profile is valid for use with international AVS endpoints.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I need to update my code each time a new endpoint is made available?
No, we expect this to be a one-time change. After you've updated your client code to handle the SetEndpoint directive your client will be prepared to support additional endpoints that may be added in the future.
Q: Are languages restricted by endpoint?
No. All supported locales are available regardless of the endpoint.
