Windows 7: Yet Another Language Pack Question

Yet Another Language Pack Question

Hi list !!!

Is there different versions of Windows 7 for different language, or there is a base version, and you can change the language by installing Language Pack of your choice.

Say for example, i want Turkish version of Windows 7; for that do I need to buy Turkish version of Windows 7 or English version with Turkish Language pack will be equivalent ??

The language pack will be essentially equivalent, but only Windows 7 Ultimate can download them.

If you want a lower version, like Home or Professional, you will need to buy the Turkish version.

Hello RadioActive, welcome to the Seven Forums.

I'm using two of my rigs in four different languages. A Windows 7 language pack transforms the whole user account completely to the chosen language. You can choose from 35 different languages. Language packs are available as optional updates in Windows Update to those using an Ultimate or Enterprise editions.

If you want your Windows 7 (Ultimate or Enterprise) to be completely Turkish, both methods you described work. You do not notice any difference comparing a Turkish Windows 7 installed from a Turkish install media, and a Turkish Windows 7 installed using English install media and Turkish language pack.

Here's some posts I've written about using language packs, you could read these to get some more information:

My current login screen shows the idea of multilingual Windows 7, I think:

Will the Menu bar, etc also change to the other language?

Thank you for the detailed instructions. What isn't clear to me from this is whether the Menu bar etc can also be changed to another language in Windows 7 ultimate?
