This article explains how to change the display language in the new Outlook app in Windows 11.
The app has many features, including support for subscription management, email forwarding, setting default From address, backing up your mailbox, changing the reading pane, opening a new window for a message, language translations, turning text predictions on or off, switch primary account, sharing a calendar, changing language, date and time format, publishing a calendar, and more.
Outlook will display default folders in the system’s default display language. You can change that to any supported language in the app.

This can help you better understand the app’s features and functions and make reading and composing emails easier. Additionally, changing the Language in Outlook can help you communicate more effectively with people who speak a different language than you do.
