Get Installed languages in SharePoint

In this post we are going to see how we can get all the installed languages for the site in SharePoint. This is especially useful when you have various language packs installed in the site.

I am going to create a simple console application. The code will also runs the same in SharePoint WSP solutions as well.

Here is a simple code in console application and the result when you run that.

If in your language settings you only have English selected, you would get only one language. so Its not about how many languages are available, it's about how many languages you have selected and allowed to be selected by user from the menu option.

I also would like to show you how you can get the same using PowerShell.

Open up SharePoint management shell and write down these steps. You are good to go.

I hope this helps.
