Add Another Language to Windows 10 Single Language or Multi-language Offline








In this topic we will explain how to add any language to Windows 10 or what we can call it Windows 10 localization, whether to windows version that supports multiple languages ​​or to windows 10 Single Language.

This topic contains links for language packs for windows 10 build (10586 (Version 10.0.10586), 1703, 1709, 1803) in addition to ways of adding another language to both windows home single language or windows pro with multilingual support.





In the beginning we must clarify the difference between these two different types of Windows 10 based on language classification:



1. Windows 10 mono or single language:

This version of Windows 10, supports only one language and does not support the addition of another language beside the basic language easily, instead, you have to perform a trick in a way to replace the recent language with new one. This type of Windows is loaded according to the user's choice when downloading the windows 10 iso file from the official site of Microsoft. This type is smaller than the other multilingual versions, and is a convenient option especially if the user does not have more than one language, because it will save him an area of ​​memory in the computer's hard disk.

The disadvantage of this type of Windows is that it does not support offline addition or installation of more than one language at the same time, nor does it support the replacement of the current language in an easy way, but there is a somewhat complicated way to switch the language from other language to your owned language with the deletion of the previous one because as we mentioned, it supports only one language.



2. Windows 10 Multi-language or Pro Edition:

If this type of Windows is installed on your computer, you will be able to add more than one language at the same time to your computer in a very easy way through the options available in the control panel that come with the system, and will switch between these languages ​​after you install a new language. Unlike the single language windows type, with this type you can add more than one display language to the computer without any problem.

You should choose the appropriate file for your Windows system according to the first and second steps.


4. Create a new folder inside the C/ partition in the main folder, then rename it to LangPack.



5. Copy the language file that you downloaded in step 3 to the LangPack folder without decompressing the .cab file.



6. Rename the language file to any short name that indicate your language (such as lp_af-za,, lp_am-et, lp_ar-sa, as-in, ...etc.), with attention to the extension of the .cab file, which should not be changed, deleted, or renamed.



Note: If the file’s extension option is enabled in your system, you will see the extension of the language file that is .cab. For example, if you have download the Arabic language file, so the name of the language file should be appeared as this: lp_ar-sa.cab

If the file’s extension option is not enabled for you, the name of the language file will appear as following:
lp_ar-sa

The name that you changed on step number 6, must be match the name at the end of the previous command.



Note:
If the previous command fails quickly, then there is a problem with the language file you downloaded in step 3 or in the name of the language file that you have renamed in step 5 or in the name or location of the language folder that you created in step 4. If the task fails after a while, it means that the language file you downloaded does not match your Windows system, so you should make sure that you download the appropriate language file as explained in steps 1 and 2.

In either case you will see the error message inside the Command prompt, and you will find out the cause of the problem or you can comment by the error message on this topic and we will help you.
