    When will FULL language packs for W8.1 be released

    Hi there
    Anybody got any idea of when the FULL language pack set for W8.1 RTM will be released -- you can't use the W8 versions - and even the WZOR leak only has the basic Ms 36 Languages in it.

    ^^Those are the "36 languages" packs that the OP is talking about though, are they not? The official versions of them, obviously.

    The whole Kit and Kaboodle will probably not be available until the "real" version comes out.

    No... He's not. He said specifically he's looking for more than those 36 languages.

    Yes. I misunderstood also (I think) I have only ever had a need for two, and sometimes three, language interfaces. Never realised there had ever been 106. Curiosity bites me though.I wonder which ones the op is looking for

    Icelandic I would assume, given the flag under his name? There was an Icelandic language pack for Windows 8.

    Yes, of course. Never even notice the flags.

    Will there be such language packs? Aren't there different kinds of language packs. "Full" language interface packs vs "language packs" which are used for input and for instance for spell checking?
