Hello there! I must admit I'm not exactly sure, but I found the following steps from xiaomifirmware. Still need to catch up in my knowledge of all these as well..

1) Download TWRP Custom Recovery (find download links in the bottom of this post) and unpack downloaded .zip archive to “C:\”.

2) Start your device in fastboot mode (press and hold “Power” and “Volume down” buttons at the same time) and connect to PC via USB 2.0.

3) Open the folder with unpacked TWRP and run “Flash-TWRP” file.

4) Wait until installation is fully completed and your phone will automatically reboot into TWRP.

5) Confirm partition modifications by right swipe and enter main menu.

6) In the main menu, go to “Wipe”  “Advanced Wipe” and select Dalvik, System, Data, Internal Storage and Cache partitions. Swipe to confirm wipe.

7) Return to main menu screen.

8) Important step! Now go to “Reboot” and tap on “Recovery”, swipe to confirm. If you skip this step, most probably the “Data” partition will be encrypted.

9) After phone reboots into recovery, you can connect it to your PC via USB cable and copy downloaded multilingual ROM if necessary

10) Go to “Reboot”  “Recovery” once again and swipe to confirm.

11) After reboot go to “Install” menu, select the archive with ROM files and swipe to confirm ROM installation.

12) After ROM is successfully installed, tap on the “Reboot System”. Your phone will automatically reboot.

13) Enjoy your newly installed ROM!
