Language Packs and Language Interface Packs (Industry 8)

7/8/2014

Review the language packs and Language Interface Packs available for Windows Embedded 8 Industry (Industry 8) and which disk they are on.

When you run setup for Windows Embedded 8 Industry (Industry 8), you are required to select a default language for your device from the ten languages available during setup. After setup, you can choose to install or remove additional Industry 8 language packs or language interface packs (LIPs). Only Industry 8 language packs can be installed on Windows Embedded 8 Industry Professional (Industry 8 Professional) and Windows Embedded 8 Industry Enterprise (Industry 8 Enterprise). 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.

Two language packs are required for each language in Industry 8, a Windows Embedded language pack and a client language pack. They must be installed in that correct order to function correctly.

Language Interface Packs (LIPs)

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. In the case of Industry 8, both the Windows Embedded and client language packs for the parent language must be installed before installing a LIP.

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