well, you didn't load mod_say_de

i have EN, DE, FR, HR, IT, RU languages working fine

anyhow, to add a new language

edit freeswitch.xml and add your language within phrase section


  <section name="phrases" description="Speech Phrase Management">
      <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="lang/de/*.xml"/>
      <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="lang/en/*.xml"/>
      <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="lang/fr/*.xml"/>
      <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="lang/it/*.xml"/>
      <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="lang/hr/*.xml"/>
      <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="lang/ru/*.xml"/>

go to:

and create a directory ... e.g. de in your case

change directory to de (cd de) and copy files from another language e.g. en.

cp -r ../en/* .

than rename en.xml into de.xml.

[tculjaga at cxss01 de]$ mv en.xml de.xml
edit the xml file in order to fit your needs.

here is my version:

[tculjaga at cxss01 de]$ cat de.xml
  <language name="de" sound-path="$${sounds_dir}/de/de/helge/"
tts-engine="cepstral" tts-voice="callie">
    <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="demo/*.xml"/>
    <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="vm/sounds.xml"/>
    <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="dir/sounds.xml"/>
    <!-- <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="ivr/ivr_funcs.xml"/> -->


these are files containing macros you will later use in dialplan. You need
to have them consistent across all the languages.

when you done this, its time for your voice files.
go to:

copy the directory structure form another language e.g.  en, wipe the *.wav
files and copy your own files of course with the same naming!

build and load mod_say_de and thats it ...

hope it helps!
