 Windows 8 Language Interface Packs

Language Interface Packs can be installed on any edition of Windows 8, providing a translated version of only the most widely used dialogue boxes, menu items and help content.

What you need to know before installing Language Interface Packs (LIPs)

LIPs must be installed on the operating system that they support. Windows 8 LIPs cannot be used on Windows 7; similarly, Windows 7 LIPs cannot be used on Windows 8.

Because the entire user interface is not translated, LIPs require at least one parent language. Untranslated parts of the user interface are displayed in the parent language.

When you download a LIP:

  • You get the parent language requirements for that language.
  • The parent language pack must be installed before the LIP can be installed.
  • You can install more than one LIP, so each user of the computer can display the user interface in a different language.
