    Adding a Language without Downloading a Language Pack


    Recently, I added Japanese language through Settings to my Windows 10 PC in order to be able to write in Japanese. Unfortunately, it also started to download its language pack. I managed to stop it using task manager by stopping Delivery Opimisation process. I was in a limited data connection and I also marked my connection as metered. I'm running Windows 10 version 1803 build 17134.


    The question is, how can I add a language without my PC automatically downloading its language pack? I only want to type in that language, not displaying my PC in that language. I was planning to add more language for my job (a translator). And why is the Language section removed from Control Panel, where people can add a language then decide whether to install its language pack or not? I know it's for consistency and migration to Settings app , but please don't remove this useful option.

    :)

  2. Speech language pack is not download!!

    Hi Ashish,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Please share the below information to help you better.

    • When you say Language pack it not downloading, do you receive any error message?
    • If yes, what is the error message?

    There are few languages that windows 10 has pre installed in the system itself, I suggest that you check these languages and locate the language that you want to install. Follow the steps below to locate the language.

    • Click on the Start Menu, locate and select Settings.
    • Click on Time and Language.
    • Locate and select Region and Language.
    • Click on Add a Language.

    If you cannot find the language there you can download a language pack for Windows 10 from the link below:

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you.
