Installing multi-language support in Windows 7 Professional and Home Premium editions

Multi-language support is native in Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate editions, but, following this tutorial you be able to alternate entire many languages in Professional and Home Premium editions.

First you’ll need of Vistalizator. This application enable to install muti-language support in all Windows 7 editions and, how it’s portable, you don’t need install it. Download it clicking here.

After, download the languages for architecture x64 (64 bits without Service Pack or Service Pack 1) or x86 (32 bits without Service Pack or Service Pack 1).

Now run the Vistalizator and click in “Add languages”.

Browse for language file that you desire and click in “Open”.

Will be show the message below, then click in OK to proceed

A new window will be open with language data and your description, then click in “Install Language”.

Wait the installation process be done.

Now, the Vistalizator will show for you the languages installed in your machine and there will be the recently installed language.

Reboot Windows and voilá. 😉

Now you have Windows 7 Professional/Home Premium with multi-language support.

The only bad thing that I noticed was: all time that you want to change the language, you must to use the Vistalizator, because the Windows 7 Professional and Home Premium doesn’t support this feature natively.

  7. Set windows update for manual installation.
    Uninstall kb971033, reboot and activate win.
    Start winupdate, uncheck and with rightclick hide kb971033, optionally install other updates.
    You can set winupdate on auto again, kb971033 won’t install and you won’t have the wat issue until kb971033 is left out.
