    Thanks! I made a change in the Registry and also I made a change in the Instructions for English localization :) ...
    Questions:
    1. I see that the GPO (gpedit.msc) also has some Chinese text ... can you translate it all into English too?
    2. Can I use the Windows System Files Restore command: "sfc /scannow" for CMGE_V2020-L.1207?
    Or is this command NOT desirable for CMGE_V2020-L.1207?
    3. Unfortunately, now I can get the English localization ONLY by online download from the Microsoft website, through the menu Setting -> Time & Language -> Language-> add Language -> ...
    This is not a very reliable way ... Perhaps Microsoft will stop serving CMGE_V2020-L.1207 ... :(
    Ok, now I have a good English interface CMGE_V2020-L.1207...
    How can I save my "English language pack" CMGE_V2020-L.1207 as a separate file so that after installing CMGE_V2020-L.1207 on ANOTHER computer, I can restore the English interface CMGE_V2020-L.120 from this file (Run -> lpksetup-> …) ?
    Or is my "English language pack" CMGE_V2020-L.1207 "hard-coded" to my motherboard, processor, etc. hardware?

    When using Windows Update, to prevent Feature update (Upgrade to 1903) prompt.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "TargetReleaseVersionInfo"="1809"

    1. You have to go ask who had my script at Reconstruction thread.
    2. It is impossible for Client LTSC. CMGE is Telemetry-free all for CMGE OEM settings. Unless
    a. (complete and easier, recommended) upgrade (by some trick) 17763 CMGE with 17763 EnterpriseS or 19044 IoTEnterpriseS + Windows Defender disablement.
    b. (partial and complicated, not recommended) Porting CMGE Group policy settings to LTSC.

    PS:
    As of 17763.1, packages can be safely removed without affecting updates, i.e. liter. From 18362.1 onwards, no.

    Okay, the Chinese "CMGE_V2020-L.1207" is the OFFICIAL equivalent of version 1809 ...
    Are there the Chinese OFFICIAL "CMGE" for newer versions like 1903 / 21H1 / 21H2?

    No. The latest is 17763.1397 CMGE_V2020-L.1207.iso.

    if we get an update CMGE_V2020-L.1207 from the Microsoft server then we get USA telemetry and spyware again ?... How can we avoid this?
    NEVER install updates from the Micrisoft server, but ALWAYS install updates ONLY from the Chinese server (CMIT Update) ?
    those. It should ALWAYS be like this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "UseWUServer"=dword:00000001


    Of course, I do not exclude that instead of USA telemetry and spyware, we will get Chinese telemetry and spyware ... :)

    P.S. I'm sorry, but this solution doesn't work "17763.X_CMGE_zh-CN_to_17763.1_en-US_amd64_Original.7z"
    I did everything according to the instructions, got a new install.wim, copied it to CMGE_V2020-L.1207.iso but had an error during installation ... Also, the installation interface was Chinese, not English. ... the instructions is probably incomplete... Perhaps I also need to change boot.wim?

    Thanks, that's an interesting idea! I did it according to your instructions, everything worked out. Installer in English, and English language pack!
    Unfortunately, the upgrade does not work ... Perhaps this is because my English versions do not match the Chinese ones? (there are also newer ones)

    I made a Group Policy fix, now I have an Update for your CMGE_V2020-L [en-US] working! :)
    Run -> gpedit.msc -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components ---> Windows Updates -> here set all “Setting” as “Not configurated”
    I have successfully updated CMGE_V2020-L to version 17763.2366 (your Instruction)... I have more questions…
    1. Question: where do I get updates from now, from a Chinese server or from a Microsoft server?
    (I noticed that the updates for your CMGE_V2020-L [en-US] are different from the updates for the my original "Chinese-English" CMGE_V2020-L, [zh-CN + en-US])

    2. I have several versions of Windows 10 [en-US]
    en_windows_10_enterprise_ltsc_2019_x64_dvd_74865958.iso (10.0.17763.1) ;
    en_windows_10_enterprise_ltsc_2019_x64_dvd_5795bb03.iso (10.0.17763.316) ;
    Windows 10.0.17763.107; Windows 10.0.17763.316; Windows 10.0.17763.805; Windows 10.0.17763.1879 ...
    Which of these versions is better to use to create CMGE_V2020-L [en-US] according to your Instructions? I was using Windows 10.0.17763.107

    3. There is a “langfeatures” folder in your Archive. Can I add other language packs to the “langfeatures” folder? (Fr, es, pl, etc ..)

    4. A small question about the comfort and safe deletion of files ... Official CMGE_V2020-L:
    (a) necessarily requires a password,
    (b) necessarily turns on the screensaver after 15 minutes of inactivity
    (c) deletes files without confirmation.
    This is too demanding for the average user, I think.
    I disable the password and restore the default settings for the “Recycle Bin”:
    (a) Run -> netplwiz -> disable password here
    (b) Run -> gpedit.msc -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization -> here set all “Setting” as “Not configurated”
    (c) Recycle Bin -> right click -> Properties -> check “Display delete confirmation dialog”
    Can you add these solutions (b), (c) to your “zh-CN to en-US” project?
    tnx
