    New Language packs are now available for W8.1

    Hi there
    Ms was very slow in announcing this -- still haven't seen an OFFICIAL announcement - but if you want to add a display language to windows (other than the original 32 or so languages) then they are now available.

    Install from Control panel ==>Language choose download and install from your selected Language(s).

    Note I think you have to have PRO or ENTERPRISE for these to work.

Not sure where to post this. I have found out that Chinese Traditional language is not available when I tried to install it. Chinese Simplified is available. Trouble is, I don't read Chinese Simplified too well. Is there another way to install Chinese Traditional language ? t-4-2
