    Hi everyone!

    I am trying to create a multiple-language Windows 11 installation media.
    I want it to be en-us, fr-fr and fr-ca.

    I managed to correclty inject the language pack in WinRE, boot.wim (both index) and change the setup option to have all language available.

    The tricky part is the Windows OS itself.

    I was able to inject the following file through DISM (/add-package) :

    Saddly, most "Modern" app are still in english until they upgrades themself through Windows store.
    Idem for some parts of the Settings pannel (not the control pannel) are in english until I do some updates.

    Am I missing some packages?
    Is there anything special to do ?

    Thanks!

    UWP apps are not translated by the LP's.

    This is been discussed and solved here, in that scenario the settings app wouldn't even open:

    Use a 22000.1 source and first integrate the LP stuff and next update it, like W10MUI does too.

    Can you show a screenshot of the settings app? and what languages are integrated?

    And a tip, use a french ISO for source, when you integrate en-US in, all, including UWP stuff, should be translated, at least that's what worked for nl-NL with en-US LPs integrated.

    I don't have any snapshot before the post install update, so I would have to recreate one for the screen shot.

    I remember the part about "Your Phone" was in english until updated and rebooted.

    The source is already 22000.1.

    I integrated the LP first
    Then the other packages.

    If I understand what you say, I should use the FR-FR or FR-CA ISO and add EN-US in it and not the opposite ?

    Yes, that works for me when integrating en-US in my nl-NL source ISO.
