MUISelector control in SharePoint Online not working


  • I am trying to add a change language functionality to SharePoint master page via the MUISelector control. However, when added, it renders only the JavaScript

    // <![CDATA[ 
    // <![CDATA[
    function OnSelectionChange(value)
    	document.cookie = "lcid=" + value + ";path=/";
    // ]]>
    // ]]>

    The drop-down is not rendered at all. Anyway, I tried running the JavaScript manually to set the cookie's value to a different lcid - 1031, 1026, etc. The page reload occurs, the cookie is set, but the language is not changed.

    The portal DOES have the language (German - Germany locale), the user DOES have the language in her / his selected display languages.

    Is this a bug or is there any other way for implementing language change in SharePoint Online portals?
