How to download and install additional display language? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A Windows 7 Professional system has no Display language under the Keyboards and Languages tab.  How to go about downloading and installing the extra language?

    I looked up https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14236 but the language I want has the download method as Windows Update.  There is nothing on Windows Update referring to language.

  • Hi healee.

    Only Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate allow you to download and install Language Interface Packs via Windows Update; the other Language Packs listed in the Microsoft KB article you've mentioned can be downloaded and installed on any Windows 7 edition.

    Bye.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

    The installation of Language packs is normally not possible on Windows 7 Professional - unless you upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise.

    However, you can download Vistalizator to install language packs. For more information, please refer to the following link:

  • The system in question is 64 bit. Will using the vistalizator work?

    How to choose between LIP and MUI?

    I downloaded the language from https://www.froggie.sk/7lp32rtm.html, but they are all for 32 bit system.

    Where can I get the ones for the 64 bit system?

  • Language Packs are available for Win 7 OS thru Win Update Catalog.

  • I don't seem to be able to find the language for the user interface for the whole system.

    Moreover no specific language is specified.

    Some don't even specify what system 32 bit or 64 bit they are for.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    LIP stands for Language Interface Pack. MUI stands for Multilingual User Interface. The parent MUI language pack needs to be installed before the LIP can be installed. 

    Try to download in the following link:

  • Are you saying I have to install both MUI and LIP?

    I've managed to download the MUI Language Packs on https://www.froggie.sk/7lp64sp1.html.  However the LIP Language Packs for the same languages are not available on https://www.froggie.sk/7lip64.html.

    Please advise!

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    No.  It just explains the difference between MUI and LIP.

    The following article describes how to download and install 64bit language, please refer to it:
