    I have a mixed enviroment of Win7 Win 8.1 and Server 2012R2.
    All the client computers is Swedish but the server is english (to simplify setup and error searching on the net).

    Now I'm setting up the WSUS server and is faced by a dilemma. HD-space! If I download swedish and english updates the repository is going to be huge! 2x the size or there about.

    Can I activate English only for server updates or am I forced to implement the dual language on the whole server?
    Parhaps a hidden functionality...

    95% of windows updates are language neutral. So HDD space is not problem. :)

    If I understand you correctly I'm to activate both Eng and Swe updates and WSUS will only download a single file when there's no difference betwen Eng (lang neutral) and Swe on a update? :confused:
    That woud be awsome if that is the case. No more problems in mixed language setups.

    Yes.

    The only exceptions - language packs and rare updates for language specific problems.

    P.S. I use WSUS with english and russian languages enabled. No problem with disk space :)
