As an administrator, you can choose to translate and adapt the format of the AODocs properties in workflow emails according to a selected language. You can also set the time zone at the library level.

The Locale email notifications setting under General settings in the library configuration interface manages these options.
Note: Users can override the locale email notifications setting with a user preference that applies to all their libraries. Learn more: Set your user preferences.
