Home » News » You can soon download language packs for Windows via Microsoft Store

Microsoft seems to be experimenting with some new language options for Windows these days.

Microsoft’s latest plans include offering its users access to a few language packs from Microsoft Store. In other words, you would be able to bypass Windows Update and download and install language packs directly from Microsoft Store the same way you download games and apps.

You can already find three language packs that include Catalan, Valencian, and Russian in the Microsoft Store.

Redstone 4 will allow users to download download language packs

The fact that during the last few days, the company uploaded a series of language packs might mean that Microsoft is planning to soon provide us with the opportunity to download language packs from Microsoft Store with Redstone 4.

The official description of each one of the three available language packs says that if you want to experience Windows in a brand new language, the local Experience Pack will do the job. This includes the latest language resources for Windows features such as Start Menu, File Explorer, and Settings.

The official description of every language pack from Microsoft Store also states that after you install the app, you have to select the Launch button in order to navigate to Windows Settings app and from there you would be able to control all of your language preferences including the Windows display language. This should be really interesting.

For now, you can try downloading the three available language packs that you can find in the Microsoft Store including Catalan, Russian and Valencian. It’s pretty likely that this is just a test for Microsoft to see how things will be going and the company will probably upload more language packs shortly in the Microsoft Store as well.
