Hello! Windows Server 2019 comes with over 40 languages to use in its interface. In fact, as it is a global system it must be available in each user’s language. However, it may happen that we travel to a place with a different language. Under those circumstances, it will be imperative to edit how the language is displayed in the system. On the other hand, language is essential to be able to understand the system’s interface. For example, the ideal situation is to have the system installed with our native language.
