    Windows 8.1 Preview in a New Language Will Remove all Apps


    Windows 8.1 Preview will come in several languages, but according to some leaked documents, in case users decide to install the update in a different language than the one already configured, the installer will remove all apps and settings.

    Windows 8.1 Preview will be offered in Arabic, English, Chinese Simplified and Traditional, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

    Hi there

    I'd suggest you would be better off installing EXTRA LANGUAGE PACKS -- then the above problem won't be applicable.

    In addition, if you’ve installed a language pack, the update automatically removes it. “If you’re running Windows 8 and have installed a language pack or a language interface pack, they’ll be removed when you install Windows 8.1 Preview,” the software maker noted.
    Then you would have to reinstall them.
