If I accept a Network Engineer job in France, what language will the Cisco , Juniper, etc, IOS communicate in?

If it is in French, is there an acceptable workaround that I can install in routers that will allow me to interact in English?

Thank you.


  • IOS isn't ever localized.

  • The CLI is always "english". Other various UI's may have localization. (eg. ASDM, SSLVPN client, etc.)

Cisco IOS commands are only in English. You can get manuals and datasheets in other languages.
