Windows Server 2019 offers us more than 40 languages â€‹â€‹(with its variations) to use in its interface and this is ideal since since it is a global operating system it must be available in the language of each user, or many times it can happen that we travel to somewhere with a different language and there it will be necessary to edit the way to display the language of Windows Server 2019 , so today we will talk about how we can change the language in Windows Server and match it to the needs of the moment.
Language is important to be able to understand each other well through the system interface with all the settings it includes. If we only understand our native language and have one system in another, it will be difficult to efficiently accomplish the tasks we are looking for. Typically, we can have our default language installed, but we may have to change the Windows Server 2019 language because it has been installed in another language such as English.
