    Yeah - when I worked in Denmark, many users preferred to use English versions as the text often mangled Danish language (which is quite clever as the Danish can quite happily mangle the language without outside help - LOL).
    I was trying to have it all in English but as son as I set location to Serbia, some items are translated (mostly badly) and some stay in English.

    Blimey - I had to read it a couple of times. MS sometimes show a spectacular inability to properly use the English language at times!

    What that phrase actually means in real English :-

    Increased Reliabity Issues ---> You are going to get cases where the reliability is better!

    What MS mean of course is MORE (UN)reliability issues!

    Lol. Depends whether you read it as (Increased reliablity) issues or Increased (reliability issues). Isn't English wonderful?
    At least here at Ten Forums, we can consult @Wynona to translate it for us

    That's the main reason I use UK English Windows rather than Finnish or Swedish and set location to UK, to get everything in English. The language in Windows in both my native languages is so incredibly clumsy and partly even misleading that I can't cope with it longer than necessary.

    I have standard user accounts named as Finnish, Swedish and German, each with respective display language (language pack) for those occasional times I need for instance a screenshot in Finnish, or check what a certain feature is called in Swedish Windows.

    Even Brits have different pronunciations.

    The two classics in England are

    Bury - most people say Bury as in bury the dead, whereas it is actually pronounced Burry (like hurry).

    The all time classic is Bath. The perennial argument is the a pronounced like short a as in "pass" or as long a as in "far".

    Generally Southerners use the longer a and Notherners the short a. As Bath is in the South, long a wins in my mind.

    Doesn't Bath associate with bath(room) like Baden-Baden in Germany ?

    Here in Germany, it was difficult to learn to speak German(as opposed to reading), as every single city, town, village, even neighborhoods can have different accents, or dialects.
