Do you speak English and can’t choose between English or English International when installing Windows 10? Then this guide will eliminate the confusion.
If you download an ISO file under Windows 10 or create a USB bootable media with the media creation tool, one of the options is to select the installation language.
This is usually an easy step for most users, but if you live in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada or any other English-speaking country, the language selection option can be confusing because you will find two options, English and English International.
Windows 10 English vs. English International
Windows 10 English and English International offer the same options and benefits. However, there are only minor differences from the standard settings and spelling. If you live in the United Kingdom, the United States or any other English-speaking nation and it is difficult for you to choose between English and English International, you will also learn to make a clear distinction between the 2nd language and English International.
Windows 10 offers the same options regardless of the language model you use. The main difference between Windows 10 English and English International is the spelling. Both models have few small spelling variations, just as the English model overrides the use of the letter u in some sentences to compare spelling with pronunciation. For example, Windows 10 English International spells the phrase “coloUr” while the English model spells the phrase “colOr”, and Windows 10 English International also spells the phrase “personaliZation” as “personaliSation” in the English model. Normally, Windows 10 International is intended for people who know British English and the English model and are intended for Windows clients residing in the United States.
Apart from spelling variations, both variants have little variation in the default settings. Both variants are aimed at customers in completely different areas and therefore have completely different standard time zones, foreign currencies and ratios. The English model of Windows 10 has the US Pacific Time Zone (PST) as the default time zone, as it is intended for customers in the United States and the watch displays the time in 12-hour format. Meanwhile, the Windows 10 English global model has a standard time zone set to its country, and the watch displays the time in 24-hour format. In addition, the 2nd model shows foreign funds and key figures specifically for clients residing in the United Kingdom, the United States and various English-speaking countries around the world.
Windows 10 English and English International have the same features and functions. However, there are some minor differences in the default settings and spelling. Depending on the country you live in, you can easily switch to languages and choose the option you want on your computer when you first install English International.
