I went to region/language, administrative and then change system locale. There is no English selection in the drop down menu. This is strange.

So, english is not installed. There is a help topic on the very same page for it.

Win7 Home Premium can't change the UI language. You need Enterprise or Ultimate to do that, or a fresh install of Windows (though I can't remember whether you can just select the language during install; if you can't, you'd need a separate install disc for English)

Oh ok that makes sense. I found a program called Vistalizator that will install language pack I need. Thanks for the reply. :D

I hadn't known about that program, but I'm a little worried about it circumventing the normal requirement of having the Enterpise or Ultimate edition to do that. That might lead to technical or legal problems down the line.

Edit: Ronnie Vernon's answer on the page that SR-71 Blackbird linked confirms that using that program will invalidate your Windows license and activation.
