Localize Date Format in Token (Velocity)

I am trying to create different tokens (each language a separate token), that will display the date format in the specified language.



English Token: March 31, 2018

French Token: 31 mars 2018

Spanish Token: 31 de marzo de 2018

Portuguese Token: 31 de março de 2018


So far, I have the English token formatted correctly but specifying a language for the other tokens is not working.


English Token:


#set( $inTimeZone = $date.getTimeZone().getTimeZone('America/New_York') )

#set( $outTimeZone = $date.getTimeZone().getTimeZone('America/New_York') )

#set( $locale = $date.getLocale() )

#set( $myDate = $convert.parseDate($lead.Member_Expire_Date,'yyyy-MM-dd',$locale,$inTimeZone) )

${date.format('d MMMM, yyyy',$myDate,$locale,$outTimeZone)}


Do we have to load a library of locales prior to defining it? Any other suggestions?


I would like to do this without web hooks.
