Static subject, language dependent

Here, you can specify a language-dependent static text that will be used in the subject line of every email. The language which is used for the subject corresponds to the language used for the email's body. The language is usually determined from the context. Further information can be found in the documentation on Java classes de.uplanet.lucy.server.ContextLanguage. The language can be overwritten with the expert attribute language. Either a language code, e.g. "de" or "en", or a variable from the processing context, which contains a language code, can be used as the value.
