  1. Parts of the UI language correspond to input language instead of display language


    The problem exists when:


    Step 1. The original language both display and input is Chinese China.


    Step 2. Change the display language but not the input language to French France, log in again, and then problem arises: Some part of the UI is French and some part of the UI is Chinese.

    However, the problem can be magically solved, when:


    Step 1. Change the input language to French.


    Step 2. Reopen the faulty app here it is Settings, but the same problem arises in other system apps as well, and then problem disappears.

    Theoretically and logically, the choice of the display language should and should only affect display, while the input language should have nothing to do with display. But from this we can see these two settings are not working as expected.


    What's more, the "language mix" does not appear again when you change the input language BACK to Chinese.


    That is to say, the problem only appears when the input language first differ from the display language, and part of the language display wrongly correspond to the preferred input language, which can be solved when the two settings become the same, and the problem do not appear again when input language is changed once more.


    I think the problem lies in at least two aspects: The first is that the environment is not properly modified when the user changes display language, so there are something left undone. The second is that the change of the input language wrongly determines the display and finishes the "left-undone" things. What I couldn't figure out was why changing back the input language would not generate the problem again.


    I've read some questions posed years before here and found out that the very same problem has existed for at least five years and had not been solved. I with this problem could be solved.


    Thank you for whoever reads this discussion.

    Tooltips displayed in the wrong language

    Although my version of Windows is set to English and the GPU-Z "Tooltip Language" appears as "System Default (English (United Kingdom))", the tooltips are appearing in the language corresponding to my system locale (or possibly keyboard layout), not the actual system language. I frequently change the keyboard layout and date format (to match the clients I'm working for and the language I'm writing in), but the system language never changes (and software is supposed to run in that language).

    I can manually select "English (United States)", but this basically makes it impossible for me to select the "correct" language (i.e., UK English), because it doesn't appear in the list (other than as "system default" - but is then ignored). Obviously it makes no difference to me if it's in UK or US English, but people with other language combinations might have a problem.

    It seems the routine that populates the language list in the options is (correctly) determining the system language, but the routine that actually generates the tooltips is (incorrectly) reading the system locale instead of language.

    Make Korean language as Windows Display Language

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As per the screenshot, I see that Korean language pack is already installed on the computer that is the reason the option is greyed out.



    As you have mentioned that you want to set Korean language as the Windows UI language, refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + I, to open
      Settings
      .
    2. Click o Time & Language and click on
      Language on the left pane.
    3. Now, under Windows display language, select
      Korean from the drop down.
    4. Sign out and
      sign in
      back to the computer to set the Korean language as display language.


    For more information, see Manage the input and display language settings
    in Windows 10
    .



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

  4. Parts of the UI language correspond to input language instead of display language

    Uninstall primary input language


    Hello,
    I'm using english-US as display language, but german (DEU) as keyboard input language.

    I would like to uninstall the english (ENG) keyboard since the input language switches to english when I hide the unneeded language bar.
    It was very simple under win7, but here I did not find the way (remove is disabled). Can you suggest a solution?

    Thanks, Marco
