I don't quite understand "Language pack service pack". My environment is running with SP2013 standard with simplified and traditional Chinese language pack installed.

When I try to download the SP for language pack: http://www.microsoft.com/zh-tw/download/details.aspx?id=42004

I found it also have different language version. So I need to download all 3 language packs (Engish, and two Chinese) sp and install them on all server instance in the farm?

  • Yes you do have to do that for the SP:s – Robert Lindgren Mar 12 '14 at 14:36
  • Has this changed since 2010? Myth number 2? absolute-sharepoint.com/2013/08/… – Christoffer Mar 12 '14 at 15:09

    Myth #2 actually describe what Robert just mentioned. – Mark L Mar 12 '14 at 15:24
  • You asked if you need to download all 3 language packs, and got the answer yes. The myth claims that you don't need to download the language pack for the default installed language which make's it 2 language packs, just like Waqas mentions. :) – Christoffer Mar 13 '14 at 8:06
  • Ya.. I hate Microsoft always make the naming so lame. The service pack's language pack's patching service pack blahblahblah =[ – Mark L Mar 13 '14 at 8:50

yes, you need to services pack for each installed language packs...as you said you have 3 different languages then you need to download all 3 and install them on all servers in the farm.

Also check this Technet, same applicable to LPs:

  • Thanks a lot. When I run the English language pack service pack exe it said no product is affacted by this pack. I think it is included in the SP1. But I still need to run the other two. – Mark L Mar 13 '14 at 2:00
  • Yes, if your default language is English. You need other 2s. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Mar 13 '14 at 2:13
