How to identify which .admx / .adml files are different languages in SYSVOL

Hi Guys,

I have recently noticed while modifying a GPO that there are some options in the German language where they should only be English.

Does anyone know how to identify which files are the 'German' ones?  The filenames are all in english and i cannot see anything that distinguishes them from the 'English' ones.

In our sysvol\policydefinitions directory, there is only an en-us folder.

Any help is appreciated

Kind Regards,

Each of the ADML are located under the language folder

All the ADMX are under the root of the policy folder and the ADML file the correlates to the ADMX will have the suffix ADML under the language folder.  if the ADML does not exist under there it will most likely default to one that does exist.

so if there is a Citrix.ADMX  and you want it to be in English you need to make sure that the Citrix.ADML under the en-US folder.

Maybe this will help.

The PolicyDefinitions folder on the Windows domain controller stores all .admx files and .adml files for all languages that are enabled on the client computer.

The .adml files are stored in a language-specific folder. For example, English (United States) .adml files are stored in a folder that is named "en-US"; Korean .adml files are stored in a folder that is named "ko_KR"; and so on.

hi guys, thanks for the responses.

unfortunately, there is only the "en-us" folder and no other.

could it be possible that the non english files reside in the en-us folder?

They should not be in the en-us. maybe the template is corrupted. If you are looking for something specific, you could search the file contents but it would be slow.
