Language packs for SharePoint 2013

This week I was looking for the Dutch language pack for SharePoint 2013 Server. Most bits are available and I was surprised I couldn’t find the language packs for Server. The language pack for Foundation is easy to find on Microsoft Download Center: Language Packs for SharePoint Foundation 2013.

It seems Microsoft has named the Language Pack for SharePoint: Office Server 2013 Language Pack. Without any reference to SharePoint at all!

For now it’s only available via MSDN, TechNet and Volume License Center, try searching for “Office Server 2013 Language Pack”.

TIP: Make sure you select the preferred language before clicking the Download-button!

  1. I can’t seem to find the dutch and French downloads of the language pack for SharePoint 2013, I only have access to the english version
    which I don’t need, as my installation is in english

    1. Please ignore, apparently I was able to find it, searching for “language pack”
      when I searched for office server language pack it didn’t appear strangly enough (only english available as language in the selection menu)

    2. Try searching for “Office Server 2013 Language Pack” in MSDN Subscriber Downloads and select your language in the refiner on the left.

  2. What is the difference between
    Language Pack for SharePoint Foundation 2013
    Language Pack for SharePoint and Project Server 2013.

    1. The language pack you want to install has to be in line with the product you installed. When installing SharePoint Foundation 2013, you install the language pack for SharePoint Foundation 2013. This is the same for SharePoint Server 2013 and Project Server 2013. I hope this answers your question.
