Language Pack question

Hi,

how do the LPs work? I know there are some LPs that needs to be incluted in the Windows installation CD.

But now i saw a LP (for build 7229) that is a 2GB iso.
Is that something that i have to install after Windows (no integration)?

They are an additional install that has to change over EVERY word from x language to the y language installed. I don't know if you can switch back and forth or not, but it is a large file.

You have to install it as an update. I have not done this, so I don't know how it works after that.

Yes, LP for manay languages is 2GB. But, to an individual language, take the tradition Chinese as an example, is only 130MB.

From the Control Panel>>>Region and Language>>>Keyboards and Languages>>>Display language, we can install another languages other than the default language (English).

For example, this image is the way we install the traditional Chinese LP:

And, yes, we can switch the display language from English to Chinese easily.

For your curiosity.
