install other language

i have a pc here with windows 8.1 installed - original UK
the user wants it in Dutch (Belgium), so i installed this language, by downloading it in the language section of control panel. This works -  but most of  the metro tiles still show in English language, as well as the welcome screen.
My question is - is it possible to get ALL into Dutch language?

I remember seeing inconsistencies like yours on the metro interface before on 2-language-systems. But the welcome screen can be adjusted, look at this:

Have you tried removing English?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The screen AFTER you click on Copy Settings, check the first box you see.

Used it myself and it works. What didn't change for you, the welcome screen?

nobusAuthor Commented:
i have removed english
i checked BOTH boxes in "copy settings" window
McKnife  - it seems the welcome screen now is Dutch - but that is all (i did not see it first, because it boots too fast) but the whole metro tile page is still unchanged = UK

That was my experience as well. Buggy.

it's the least i can say; it started  installing downloads - after 1/2 hour reported that they could not be installed - and reversed everything
so i started a fresh install, to be sure i get everything correct
but i will try your suggestion again

can somebody tell me why we pay so much for these buggy MS os'es?
another company was broke after once slip up...

They will fix it, what else? This is a rather serious error.

i have never had the pleasure that MS fixed some  problem i had.
if others have other ideas - let them come
i wonder if re-adding uk could help?

Location already set to Dutch/Belgium? System locale also?

Did you reset your tiles cache ? In the Tiles screen, move cursor to right lower corner, Settings, Tiles, Clear.

McKnifeCommented:
Seconds ago, I switched the language on my own machine. Tiles were switched, too, although I am sure to have seen your problem earlier.
Did you install all optional and security updates?

nobusAuthor Commented:
Kimputer, i only have in settings; Tiles remove personal data from tiles  - is that what you mean?
McKnife - YES i installed them  -no go
seems this one is bewitched - i have reinstalled it already several times...for testing and trying diffeent things

KimputerCommented:
My button says Clear, but anyway, it's that function indeed.

nobusAuthor Commented:
Kimputer, it seems to have cleared a few = translated into Duch; but not all
difficult to believe MS is doing this..
i'm held hostage for several days now -  and they refuse to pay
i just rebooted for good measure, and am showing my result (very strange) below
tileslist

Nobus, I installed dutch Belgium in a vm just for a test and get the same as you. So MS has decided to to translate anything for the dutch whereas for other languages, it has. That's all. So if your customer does not accept that, they will have to complain to Microsoft, not to you. If however you promised them anything would be translated, you have a problem :|

McKnifeCommented:
OK, skip my comment before this... you can solve it :)
Uninstall the non-translated ones and reinstall them from the store. Just tried with the calendar app (now "agenda").

Mc Knife - i'll try it asap and post back - never thought of that.
**Why does MS keep making things difficult?
0
 
McKnifeCommented:
You often find funny bugs and errors on locations that are rarely visited. Not many will buy an English system and install a dutch language pack, so MS will not be aware of that.

Hi.

Since there is no other way, it was quite complete, I would say :) Or what is still missing?
