Available Language Packs for Windows

Updated: October 20, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

The following tables show the supported language packs and language interface packs (LIPs) that are available with Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Corporations and users can download LIPs from the Microsoft.com web site and add them to any genuine copy of Windows that has the supported parent language installed. For more information or to download a LIP, see Local Language Program.

LIPs must be installed to the operating system that they support. Windows 8.1 LIPs cannot be used on Windows 8; similarly, Windows 8 LIPs cannot be used on Windows 8.1.

OEMs and system builders with Microsoft Software License Terms can get the LIPs from the Microsoft OEM site and OEM Partner Center.

For a complete list of supported languages and locales, see Locale Identifier Constants and Strings.

The following table includes the following settings:

  • Language display name. The name of the language that will be displayed in the UI.

  • Language/culture name. The language identifier based on the language tagging conventions of RFC 3066. This setting is used with the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool, or in an unattended answer file.

  • Language pack type. The type of language pack, including the base language or required parent language. For more information, see Add Language Packs to Windows.

  • Language hexadecimal identifier. The hexadecimal representation of the language identifier. This setting is used with the keyboard identifier when specifying an input method using DISM.

  • Language decimal identifier. The decimal representation of the language identifier. This setting is used in Oobe.xml.

  • Supported operating systems. The operating systems that support a specific language.
