Add languages to a Windows 11 Enterprise image
It’s important to make sure users within your organization from all over the world can use your Azure Virtual Desktop deployment. That’s why you can customize the Windows 11 Enterprise image you use for your virtual machines (VMs) to have different language packs. Starting with Windows 11, non-administrator user accounts can now add both the display language and its corresponding language features. This feature means you won’t need to pre-install language packs for users in a personal host pool. For pooled host pools, we still recommend you add the languages you plan to add to a custom image. You can use the instructions in this article for both single-session and multi-session versions of Windows 11 Enterprise.
When your organization includes users with multiple different languages, you have two options:
- Create one dedicated host pool with a customized image per language.
- Have multiple users with different languages in the same host pool.
The second option is more efficient in terms of resources and cost, but requires a few extra steps. Fortunately, this article will help walk you through how to build an image that can accommodate users of all languages and localization needs.
