  • Oct 18, 2017  Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise. The Windows 7 language packs can be installed only from the Optional Updates section in Windows Update.

In Windows 7, you can download languages in two ways: Using Windows Update. If you're running an Ultimate or Enterprise edition of Windows, you can download available language packs by using Windows Updates. Language packs installed using Windows Update provide a fully translated version of Windows dialog boxes, menu items, and help content. Screenshot, Windows 7. To use languages other than the default installed in Windows, you need to download them from Microsoft and then install the language pack for the language you wish to use. To get started, click Start (Windows logo) to open the Start Menu. When the Start Menu opens, enter ​change display language in the Windows search box.

P.s. I have a home version of windows (not professional or ultimate) :)

You must have Ultimate or Enterprise edition to go from German to English, otherwise you must buy an English version of Windows 7 and re-install the Operating System.

  1. Start -> All Programs --> Windows Update --> Optional Updates.
  2. Open optional Updates and go to the section Windows 7 Language Packs.
  3. Tick the Language Pack you want and hit OK
  4. Proceed with Install Updates
  5. Depiction of Windows 7 downloading a Language Pack
  6. Automatic install initiated after download

How to change the Windows 7 Display Language:

  2. Switch the display language in the Choose a display language dropdown menu.
  3. Click OK
  4. Log off for the changes to take effect (This will affect only the user profile under which you are currently logged on).

I had the same problem and I followed what is here:

you will have to get the appropriate “”, i.e. from the Language Pack DVD. Then, type this in a command prompt as Administrator (change path and language code appropriately):

  1. dism /online /add-package /

  2. bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

  3. bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

After that, remove the registry folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlMUIUILanguagesde-DE.


If you get this error: An error occured trying to open Error:0×80070003. The System cannot find the path specified

copy the to C: (the root directory) and run dism from there.

The command line shell must be run as Administrator.

And it worked

I know this question is for windows 7, but it's one of the top hits on google. On Windows 10 this can be done on all variants (I just tested this on the pro version, but have read it should work on the Home edition too). The following works to change the language of one user, and I'm not sure how to do it for the whole OS (so even the login screen is in another language)

  • Press Win + i
  • Select Time and Language
  • Go in Region & Language
  • Add the language of your choice
  • Click on new language and an Options button appears
  • Click on the button to download the Language Pack
  • Go back to the previous screen (where you can see all the installed languages)
  • Click on the new language again and click on Set as default

The next time you log in, windows will be in the new language!
