Why isn’t cortana in my region or language?
Why isn’t cortana in my region or language? You can be are in the region or country from the list that supported by Cortana, but in some way Cortana cannot be found in your Windows 10, and you also asking yourself Why Cortana is not in my region or language?
Cortana is often a private helper in Windows 10, you may ask something to Cortana, set up your schedule, confirm the weather, confirm the flight schedule, asking course, etc. Cortana becomes one of many features which make peoples likes to upgrade to Windows 10.
It becomes very disappointing if after upgrading to Windows 10 you then learn that Cortana will not be available in your region or language. We all know, right now Cortana only supports for a few regions and languages. Suppose you already are in the region and speak the language that based on Cortana, however it is still not available with your Windows 10? how it happened and the way to fix it?
Why isn’t Cortana in my region or language and the way to enable it?
Cortana will not support all regions and language in the world, at this time there are just 11 regions and languages, be sure that your region and language is for the following list:
- Australia: English
- Canada: English
- China: Chinese (Simplified)
- France: French
- Germany: German
- India: English
- Italy: Italian
- Japan: Japanese
- Spain: Spanish
- United Kingdom: English
- United States: English
But if your region and language is one, but Cortana still not available, right here is the answers with the forum moderator at Microsoft Community answered questions from Windows 10 users who will not use Cortana when found in the region and language that supported Cortana.
Update (8/5/15) – A fix was launched included in KB3081424, Collective Update for Windows 10: August 5, 2015, to get a problem Cortana was having when installing language packs. Please be sure you’ve installed the new Windows Updates before attempting these methods.
Cortana is now only supported when your system is within the 7 options shown from the table below.
(Update: 11/12/15 – When you have installed the Windows 10 November update, Cortana will be supported in Canada, India, Australia, and Japan. The table below have been updated to display the 11 configurations which are now supported.)
Please be sure that your Country or Region, Language, and Speech Language settings are common aligned and among Cortana’s supported locale configurations. If these OS settings will not be aligned, Cortana will never be available. Such as, Cortana are not available when your country is placed to United States, though the Windows display language is ready to English (United Kingdom).
Therefore we recommend one to update your Windows 10 to your latest build, and then likely to set the region and language correctly, when you needs to download added packages.
