  • Language Interface Packs (LIP) can be installed on any version of Windows 7, but only translate around 80% of the system. LIPs require that at least one parent language be present on the machine in order to be installed.
     
    They can be  downloaded for free:

    Install complete language - MUI
    To install a different language - Multilingual User Interface (MUI) - you need to have Windows 7 Ultimate. If you don't have Ultimate you can do an Anytime Upgrade to Ultimate. There are 35 languages to chose from, they are listed under "Language Packs" at this website:

  • To get helpful answers, please inform about two parts of your question: 1) Do you want to change the input language (which characters shall appear on the screen/print when you use that or that keystroke)? Or the display language (the language of the UI)? 2) What do you mean with "problem language"?
    In general, changing the input language is much easier than changing the display language (only possible in Win7 Ultimate, with some - limited - exceptions for regional cultures).

  • Hi,

    you cannot change user interface language.

    non è possibile modificare la lingua dell'interfaccia utente.

    <in Windows 7 Ultimate it is possible (and I think also in Enterprise)
