What Is MUI (Multilingual User Interface)?

More Information

MUI is a Microsoft Windows package from Microsoft that allows each user to select the Windows language. A similar tool is available from Microsoft for Microsoft Office
Functionally, Microsoft MUIs perform the same task as localized versions of Windows and Office. File and folder names are translated in localized versions, but not in the MUIs. For example, while a localized version of Windows or Office would translate the folder names (Spanish Inicio instead of Windows Start) and are coded using the language, MUIs translate menus and dialogs only. That is, MUIs do not contain translated registry entries, but localized versions do. This is useful if the user wishes to run a program that requires the English version of Windows, while having his Windows in another language.
