It appears to be part of the Cyberlink PowerDVD setup

It is a part of PowerDVD.I have the 7.2 version I'm not sure if it is also part of the other versions. I don't think it is needed to run at startup (I disabled it and nothing happen) but I'm not sure what exactly does.

Part of Cyberlink PowerDVD , controls country specific selection of the displayed language in the DVD playback software. If you not need the associated function then you can disable it.
It's a Cyberlink Power DVD 9 multilanguage file. It's not a treat

Best practices for resolving Language issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Language. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the Language.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
