Language Support in Windows 10 and Office 365

Following the upgrade to Windows 10 1809 some users experienced difficulties with the Windows 10 Japanese language features they had previously installed. This update had removed the optional features.

Microsoft recommended reinstalling the optional language features. However, attempts to reinstall the language features via the Time and Language Category of Windows Settings did not allow the options to be installed. This was because Microsoft have decided that from version 1809 users can only install language options via Windows Update. Since we use SCCM, Windows Update is locked down so this will not work.

To circumvent this restriction a subset of the available languages features have been downloaded to the SCCM and made available via the Software Centre. The supported languages at present are

  • Arabic
  • Chinese (China/Singapore)
  • Chinese (Hong Kong/Macau)
  • Chinese (Taiwan)
  • French (France)
  • German (Germany)
  • Greek (Greece)
  • Italian (Italy)
  • Japanese (Japan)
  • Korean (Korea)
  • Polish (Poland)
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Portuguese (Portugal)
  • Russian (Russia)
  • Spanish (Mexico)
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • Welsh (GB)

If the relevant application is run from Software Centre prior to adding the language in the Time and Language Category of Windows Settings Language options can be installed.

In addition a subset of Office 365 Language Packs have been download and packaged for including in the Software Centre. Although these packs are publicly available, they would normally require administrator rights to install. The languages supported are:-

  • Arabic 
  • Chinese (Simplified) 
  • Chinese (Traditional) 
  • French 
  • German 
  • Greek 
  • Italian 
  • Japanese 
  • Korean 
  • Polish 
  • Portuguese (Brazil) 
  • Portuguese (Portugal) 
  • Russian
  • Spanish 
  • Welsh

Update to Windows 10 Staff Task Sequence on Friday 3rd May

Dear Colleagues,

On Friday 3rd May, from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, the Windows 10 Staff Task Sequences and Windows Upgrade Task Sequences will be edited in order to remove the Software Update installation step. This step was causing the Task Sequence to run for long periods of time or time out.

The Windows Software Updates will now be injected into the image and the rest of the Software Updates will be installed post build.

The Task Sequences will be at risk during this period. It is therefore recommended that you do not attempt to image any Windows 10 staff computers at this time.
