Using Different languages with Windows MultiPoint Server 2011

Hey folks, this is Dean again, posting from TechEd 2011.

One common question I’m getting this year is “What languages does MultiPoint Server support?”

Because Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 is built on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, it natively supports the SP1 language packs, which are available for download here.

MultiPoint Server is fully localized into 16 of the languages on that page, which is to say that the entire desktop shell experience, the management tools, and the MultiPoint Manager are translated into that language.    MultiPoint also supports a partially localized experience for the other 20 languages on that page.  For those partially localized languages, the entire desktop experience will show in the localized language, but the management tools and MultiPoint manager will still be in English – meaning that the student experiences at each station can be localized, but the teacher thumbnail management tools will still show in English.

How do you configure the languages?  watch the below vid for a walkthrough.:
