Intune & Language Packs

I work at a school and we are trying to roll-out the Japanese language pack on Intune machines for students. Our students speak English, but take Japanese classes.

Deploying the language pack seems impossibly difficult - it only works if the users are admins, which is obviously something we do not want to do.

Does anyone know how to deploy a language pack to students through Intune?

Language pack for Office apps or Windows?

0 Votes 0 ·

We are deploying the Windows Language Pack (usually found under Optional Features) for Japanese.

Intune has been deployed to a thousand or so machines. Several hundred of those require Japanese language tools. We are trying to deploy the Windows Optional Feature to that subgroup of machines remotely.

@ArielaRandall-3804 Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

For this issue, I have done some research. I find that the following links that list some methods may give us some inspiration. We can refer to them:

Hope it will help.

Hi @LuDaiMSFT-0289

Thank-you for the links.

These two examples change the devices' default language. We want to keep the default language as English, but have the option to go between the English and Japanese keyboards.

Any hints on this?

You could deploy language packs from MS Store to Intune and show them in Company Portal.

Hi @yannara

Yes, we are deploying this through Company Portal. The language pack changes the users' computer language though, and we are trying to just install the keyboard without changing the computer's language.

@ArielaRandall-3804 Thanks for your explain.

For the option to other language keyboards, I have an idea. We could refer to the following link to try to write PowerShell Scripts to add keyboard languages.

Note: Non-Microsoft link, just for the reference.

Then we could try to deploy the PowerShell Script via intune.

Hope the above information will help.
