The architecture doesn’t matter, as the ADMX files and ADML files are identical.

Copy the language folders (containing the ADML resource files) of the languages you wish to use from the temporary location to the policydefinitions folder

Open Group Policy Management. Create a new policy object. Under both Computer Configuration and User Configuration, the Office 2013 Administrative Templates are now available.
