Offline mode in Rockbox Utility is not intended for this kind of
thing. It perhaps should be removed altogether since it's not really
maintained since years and I doubt it's working the way it's supposed
to be.

Rockbox Utility will use voice strings stored on the player if (a)
you're using a recent enough build and (b) you're using a development
version of Rockbox Utility -- the latest release 1.2.14 doesn't
include that feature. It does not understand the lang format (since
that is the souce format that is processed for each player using
genlang). In your case you would also need to update those stored
strings -- genlang can generate the required files, but using the
build system is much simpler since it automatically does this :)

I don't think cygwin is maintained anymore. Personally I would
deprecate or obsolete it, since to the best of my knowledge people
have moved to using VMs these days.

you can download them from the git repository. No need to store them
someplace else.
