So it's a fact then, it doesn't work in other languages than English? I just reset my Band 2 to try to fix this. Luckily everything seems to work as before (except Cortana, well). I read some scary stories about not syncing right, which it did for me, and was afraid I'd broken something that didn't need fixing.

In any case, it would be important to have this feature for non-US speakers too. Let's petition or bug MS or something.

You have to put the band in english. I have the phone and Cortana in spanish, set the band 2 in english and it works perfectly well.

The drawback for this, and I guess it's the only one I've found out by testing is, is that the Band 2's dictionary is in english, so you won't be able to reply properly with texts. It does work with Cortana dictation, seeing that it does the speech to text translation in the phone and it uses its own language setting.
This is all very weird.
