    Hi,
    i have installed windows 8.1 from english iso on my laptot, and than installed the language pack it-it
    I have setted the language as primary e logged off (also restarted), but some metro apps, such Calendar, People, News, Sports, Food & drink, Maps etc. are still in english.
    Is it normal? and how can I translate without unistall and reinstall them?

    Thank you

    Thank you for your answer.

    Is it possible to integrate the italian (or other languages) metro app in the ISO directly, as the language pack?

    I already made the ISO with the language pack, but the problem still remain.

    after installing a LP, go to the store and search updates, that works for me

    I did this on a few machines which originally were installed with English version and brought to local language by installing the lp pack. Neither box changed the Metro apps to local lp by installing any updates. Only way was to uninstall the "wrong" apps and reinstall through store. No way around
