Windows 10 20H2 multi language Install using SCCM

Hi,

I'm currently facing some problems.
I would like to deploy the new Win10 20H2 via SCCM in a TaskSequence with multi language but since there are no longer the old .cab files I'm a bit lost right now.
I've tried to use the appx Experience packs but that doesn't work. Do you have any manual or information's on how to deploy mutli language Windows?
To be sure I'm talking about using one Win10 Image in en-us and only apply the language after the Win install in the TS
Currently we are using this method to install Win10 1809 with the language Pack for the different countries.

I apricate any support
Best regards
Morris

I haven't had a chance yet to download the Feature on Demand discs from VLSC, are you saying they don't supply cabs for 2004/20H2 to add additional languages?

EDIT: I just downloaded the Feature on Demand Discs from VLSC
I see the language cab files there. My assumption is that I'll be able to slip in the other languages I need using those cabs, just like I did for 1809 and 1909. (Starting with a Base of the en-US Media)

I did the same and found the new Feature on Demand package in the VLSC.
But I think I'm missing some informations. Do you know what is the equivalent of the old language pack?
In the Task Sequence(TS) im currently using a package in SCCM what contains the Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-Basic-de-de-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~.cab from the Feature on Demand. But it runs into an error. So I guess there were some kind of changes to the language pack cab files.
In the TS im using a dism command: dism.exe /Quiet /Add-Package /Image:%OSDTargetSystemDrive%\ /PackagePath:. /LogPath:%_SMSTSLogPath%\dism-lang.log
Online everyone is talking about the cab files aren't available to use any longer and that lxps need to be used.
Do you have any further information for me please?
Thanks a lot!

@Morris-2451

Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

Starting in Windows 10 version 1809 "October 2018 Update", Microsoft will discontinue language packs in the CAB format. AppX packages delivered via the Microsoft Store that enable users to experience Windows features like the File Explorer in the language of their choice. In Windows 10 version 1809, this will replace the CAB file for language packs.

I just read over this, and it's the best article I've read so far:
https://sysmansquad.com/2020/06/08/language-packs-language-experience-packs-language-interface-packs-what/

What I don't like about 20H2, is this:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/language-packs-known-issue

That is going to cause me a large headache since we don't have access to the Store.
Now if you have access to the MS Store, sounds like you'll be alright.

@Morris-2451 Did you find a solution since then ? I'm trying to do it myself.

I'm currently finishing my Task Sequence for 20H2 installing "Language Packs" inside TS and it is working fine with this manual:
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/core-infrastructure-and-security/windows-10-multilanguage-deployment-with-memcm/ba-p/1347144#h_38613590318151588256071004

  1. Install Language Pack

  2. Install Local Experience Pack (Appx)

  3. Register Local Experience Pack with local admin user

  4. Set Language with Script + XML

Just hanging on adding FODs like Handwriting, TextToSpeech at this moment for having the full Language Features installed.
Will update you on this.

I had a nightmare Job with Satellite FoDs Handwriting and text to speech have gone in fine but paint and Powershell et al are just not taking in the additional languages
