Looks like Cortana will support 15 languages at launch


Above is the list of language packs installed for Cortana in the Windows Phone 8.1 emulator.

It appears, looking at the language packs, that Cortana will be supporting more than just US English at launch, as many of us have feared.

The OS in fact includes language packs for 15 languages and regions, including:

  • German
  • UK English
  • Indian English
  • US English
  • Spanish Spanish
  • Mexican Spanish
  • French
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Polish
  • Brazilian Portugese
  • Russian
  • Chinese Chinese
  • Hong King Chinese
  • Taiwanese Chinese

Of course many of these are variations, and in fact the supported languages are really German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese, which is still a pretty good start.

poster at WPWorld.pl, XONE has revealed that the Polish language pack has all the same commands as the English version, suggesting the other regions will also not get a simply watered down version, but have access to the full functionality of Cortana.

Does Cortana support your language, or have you been left out in the cold? Let us know below.
