Purchasing: Are non-English versions of covered products available?
Departmental Use (for use on University-owned computers)
The Microsoft Campus Agreement (MSCA) includes licensing for Windows Operating System (OS) Upgrades in English/Multilanguage, so departments can purchase installation media for native versions from Dell under the Microsoft Select Agreement (Windows OS Upgrade English CD, Windows OS Upgrade Hebrew CD, Windows OS Upgrade Chinese [Simplified] CD, etc.)
While we are licensed to use these products, installation media is subject to availability. Departments can contact the Dell Account Representative for their campus for pricing and availability of international versions (Select price list likely just has English). For more information on purchasing from Dell under Select, please see our Select page.
Student and Faculty/Staff work-at-home (for use on personally-owned computers)
While the Microsoft Campus Agreement (MSCA) includes licensing for the English/Multilanguage version of Windows OS Upgrade, the foreign language media is typically not available for purchase through Microsoft Student Fulfillment. The version of Windows OS Upgrade that is available runs natively in English, but does have support for a fixed set of foreign languages (fixed by Microsoft). Additional support can be found online.
