Install Multiple Language Versions of Visual Studio


The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on

For the latest documentation for Visual Studio 2017, see Install language packs in Visual Studio 2017.

By installing one or more language packages, you can run Visual Studio 2015 in other languages on the same computer. You must obtain a separate language package for each language that you want to install.

  • When you install a language package, resource files for the installed features are automatically installed for each language version.

  • Visual Studio service packages apply to all installed language versions of Visual Studio. You no longer need to install a service package for each language version of Visual Studio that you've installed.

  • You can uninstall language packages by using the maintenance mode of Visual Studio setup. Open Control Panel, open Programs and Features, choose your edition of Visual Studio, and then choose Uninstall/Change.
