settings api (specifically to change language)

I am disappointed to learn that constant contact does not support sending emails in a language different from the language selected in settings. It would be preferable to use the contacts preferred language to determine what language to put in the footer etc.

I would like to see a language option added to the contacts with the ability to use that to determine the footer language.


In the meantime is there maybe an undocumented api to change my language preference? we don't use the CC wizard for sending emails, I have used your api to integrate our proprietary mailing utility which does support multiple languages. I have separated our contacts into separate lists based on language, but still seem to have no way to change our language preference.



At this time there is no way to change the language setting in the API. I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused, but I will definitely relay this request to our engineers and let them know that this is an important feature that you would like to see.
