Available Language Packs for Windows

The following tables show the supported language packs and language interface packs (LIPs) for Windows. Language packs are available for Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, and Windows Server 2012 R2. LIPs are available for Windows 10, but are not available for Windows Server. For more information, see Language packs.

Windows Server and Windows 10 language packs are not interchangeable. Windows Server language packs cannot be used on Windows 10, and Windows 10 language packs cannot be used on Windows Server.

LIPs must be installed to the operating system that they support. Windows 10 LIPs cannot be used on Windows 8.1; similarly, Windows 8.1 LIPs cannot be used on Windows 10.

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