I have tried even CUI Versions , decompressed in the same folder (overwrite)

I have tried even to copy imagel in even folder ,image for linux root and firmware ,help and script

For IFD, you just run makedisk after extracting, for BIBM there is only english, for IFW, you copy over the DLL, for IFL, you need to do it from Linux (you can use the boot disk as well, instructions for that is at https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=545 (but actually I believe you could modify the makedisk.cfg to copy it in).

Add (untested):
opt5=imagel,/tbu/|imagel file from local directory.|initrmfs

after the opt4

Hi
Wait ,for Image for dos is enogh to copy the translation inside the folder ,should I add some commandline
and for image for linux I have to do under linux??
about the link there is nothing how to create an image for linux and how modify the makedisk.cfg
why don't add a way in the ILF makedisk.exe a way to under windows to use a language pack easly?
in makedisk.cfg there is nothing related to language
thanks

I tried...

opt5=imagel,/tbu/|imagel file from local directory.|initrmfs

But after clicking Finish I get "FAILED: The Process did NOT complete successfully!"

It's not my day. I tried to do it in Linux Mint 20.1

ifl_fr_gui_trial.zip (not extracted) was copied to the folder and then I ran Setup. IFL is in English, not French.

Stupid me. I was using the trial language files instead of the paid files.
IFL is now in French, made in Linux Mint 20.1

But I still get "FAILED: The Process did NOT complete successfully!" when doing it in Windows.

I tried https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=545

Zip File Mode (requires IFL zip file)

Install IFL to removable drive:

I selected to make a Custom version.

The web page says...
When you create a custom version, the "IFL Boot Media Settings" menu will be displayed during the build process. From that menu, you can configure such items as kernel boot parameters, default video mode, user scripts, language version, network interfaces, restore disc settings, login and password, etc.

At no stage did I see the "IFL Boot Media Settings" menu. So I couldn't change the language version. What did I do wrong?

There are screenshots in the How-to guide (Section 6 for custom options):

Are you not seeing that screen?

Paul,

The screenshot in Section 6. I don't see that window when using Zip File Mode.

I do see it when I run the build in Linux Mint.
