Windows Embedded Standard 7 adopts same localization model as Windows 7. Basically, language resources are completely separated from code, enabling a worldwide binary which doesn't require localization in all supported language. All localizable resources are packaged in form of language pack, and Standard 7consists of language neutral image plus language packs. “You can add language packs using DISM (Online/Offline) or language package setup tool LPKSETUP (when installing online), however, keep in mind that DISM or LPKSETUP installation won’t resolve package dependencies and bring in associated required font package for that language, so you would’ve to install them separately using DISM. Language pack must be reapplied to a target image after any Feature Set package (including drivers) is added because MUI resources of feature package can only be installed after feature package is already installed on target image.” “Users can configure languages through Region and Language control panel applet, which can be launched either via control panel window or via a command line, for example “rundll32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL intl.cpl”. The following can be configured: Switch UI language after installing non en-US language pack and associated font packages; Change locales; Change Keyboard and input language; Remove language package via LPKSETUP (or command line tools DISM).”
