Language Packs and Language Interface Packs (Standard 8)

7/8/2014

Review language packs and language interface packs in Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8).

Only Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8) language packs can be installed on Standard 8. Language packs from other versions of Windows or Windows Embedded are not supported.

Language pack

A language pack contains all of the resources necessary to localize the UI. Some language packs are considered “full” packs because all of the language pack resources will be localized to that language. Other language packs are considered “partial” because some of the resources will be localized to the specified language but the remaining resources will be localized to a base language, usually en-US.

Language Interface Pack (LIP)

A LIP contains only a subset of the resources needed to localize the UI. A LIP is typically used where a language pack is not yet available. LIPs require the installation of a specific parent language before they can be installed and used. The Windows Embedded language pack for the parent language must be installed before installing a LIP.

languages are shipped on both the 32-bit and 64-bit Industry 8 setup disks for both Standard 8.
