* These columns apply to Windows NT (i86) Workstation only. In some cases, NT Advanced Server was not localized at the same time as NT Workstation. Windows NT is also available for the DEC, Alpha, and MIPS architectures. Japanese versions of Windows are also available for the NEC PC98 platform. Microsoft plans to ship Windows NT 3.51 in the same languages in which is shipped Windows NT 3.5, with the addition of Simplified Chinese. Far East editions of Windows NT 3.51 will be fully localized. Windows NT 3.5 is available for DEC Alpha in Danish, Dutch, Finish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish. Windows NT 3.1 for all of the above except Denmark, Finland, and Norway.

**Windows 3.2 shipped for the People's Republic of China in December 1994 (government-approved edition).
