Language Packs in Vista
Vista comes with a lot of different language packs available for download through the Windows Update. Unlike with XP, with Vista you can change languages as easily as logging off and logging back on, and each user of the computer can use his or her preferred language to interact with the PC. This is really great if you have a foreign exchange student at home, if you are learning a new language, or if you just simply want to have some fun!
You can install as many languages as you want, but there are some important things to know first, about installing them. Because language packs contain language-specific resources for all the Windows Vista components, the language packs are large and take some time to install. The average download size is approximately 200 megabytes (MB) and may require up to 1,100 MB of free disk space to install. The installation process takes approximately 30 minutes. However, the time varies depending on the performance of the computer.

And one last fine-print note: 16 languages became available on January 30. The remaining languages will follow. We’ll post an update on this site when additional languages are available for download.
