Windows 8 offers improved language support

Windows 8 logoCommunication is key in any relationship to succeed when you do it the right way, and the same applies to the connection between end users and the software company. Windows 8 is starting to shape up to be a rather interesting entity, although the recent logo change did not exactly go down well with the masses, being rather too sharp and straight in its lines. Well, momma always said not to judge a book by its cover, or a software by its windows (pun not intended), so what are the improvements made underneath the hood by Microsoft in Windows 8? For starters, improved language support is a given, with the focus trained on making additional display languages available to all Windows users. Microsoft has made these languages a snap to find and install, letting you switch between them in a jiffy. There is also one more new display language – English for the UK, which frankly, has been a long time in coming.

There will also be another 13 more Language Interface Packs (LIPs) that can be installed over the top of a standalone Windows display language, holding localized user interface elements for the most commonly-used Windows features. These new languages include Punjabi (Pakistan), Sindhi (Pakistan), Central Kurdish (Iraq), Uyghur (People’s Republic of China), Belarusian (Belarus), Kinyarwanda (Rwanda), Tigrinya (Ethiopia), Tajik (Tajikistan), Wolof (Senegal), K’iche’ (Guatemala), Scottish Gaelic (United Kingdom), Cherokee (United States), Valencian (Spain).
