Language selection or setting by store associate

Store UI language should obey the locale of the store employee (ie, use the locale in the YFS_USER entry), and not be a setting at the store level. Additionally, allow the store employee to select from a list of languages for the UI within the store UI.

How will this idea be used?

Rollout to the retail store outlets in Canada with the OOTB language settings violates local language laws where the interface language must be one of two official languages of the employee's choice.

Further, many latin American countries, European countries and even US territories (Puerto Rico) are bi-lingual or multi-lingual.
