The full version of Windows 10 Mobile is not so far away, and new additions and improvements are being presented every day. This time, Gabe Aul, Chief of the Insider Program announced the addition of long-awaited language packs and keyboards for Windows 10 Mobile Preview.

New Language Packs And Keyboards Are Available For Windows 10 Mobile Preview

New Language Packs and Keyboards can now be installed in the new Windows 10 Mobile build 10536, which was released to Fast ring users of Mobile Preview program earlier this week.

Gabe Aul himself confirmed that Windows 10 Mobile developers needed some extra time to get things done, but new languages finally arrived to Windows 10 Mobile Preview yesterday. However, region support for Cortana on Windows Phone 8.1 devices is still absent, and since the company is working on the new operating system for its handsets, it will probably stay that way.

New keyboards and languages now available for Windows 10 Mobile users

Just as a reminder, Microsoft recently added support for Japan, Canada and Australia, but only for Insiders with build 10532 or up. Additionally, Cortana translation is now available in 38 languages, including: Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Malay, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese, Welsh and Klingon!

All these languages are fully supported, but some users warn that there may be some errors in translation, at least while Windows 10 Mobile is still in the preview phase, but Microsoft will hopefully fix that in the full version of Windows 10 Mobile.

This update may not be available to you from day one, so if you can’t download the new language pack right now, wait for a day or two, go to Keyboard Settings and see if your desired language pack is available for download. Although we don’t know when the full version of Windows 10 Mobile will exactly arrive, we’re sure that it will be as soon as Microsoft fixes all present bugs.
