Description

All my Windows operating Systems are set to use the UI Culture: German

With Update-Help or Save-Help I can download PowerShell help in different (any) language by use of the –UICulture parameter.

Because my Windows OS is set to use the German UI Culture and the Cmdlet Get-Help depends on it, I cannot access PowerShell help in a different Language (English) with Get-Help.

There is still no translated German PowerShell help and even if I have installed the en-US verbose Help files I cannot use it (easely)! 

Please add the –UICulture Parameter to the Get-Help Cmdlet to make it possible to call Help in a different language then the Windows Ui Culture.

Example to call the en-US English Help for the Cmdlet Get-Command:

Get-Help Get-Command –UICulture 'en-US' -Full

We enabled this scenario in PowerShell 4.0 by adding logic to fall back to en-US if help content isn't available in the current culture. No UICulture parameter needed!
