Windows XP: Language Settings

It is necessary to configure Windows XP to view various languages with different programs, such as Internet Explorer. 

Important Note: Before attempting to add a Language Group, make sure that you have the Windows XP CD available.

Add a Language Group:  To add a Language Group, click on Start, Settings, and Control Panel.  Click on Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options.

Next, click on Regional and Language Options.

Language Options: Click on the Language tab, and check the "Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages" if you have selected the Arabic, Farsi, or Urdu languages.

Regional Options: Click on the Regional Option tab, and then select the  various languages from the drop-down menu to be installed on your computer.


Details...: Click on the Details... tab to add the keyboards configurations for the different languages.


Second, make sure that your default language is correctly selected. For example, English (United States) is set to Default.  Finally, click OK.  This assures that English is the default language. 

Language Bar...  Click on the Language Bar tab and check "Show the Language bar on the desktop." This facilitates quickly changing from one language to another language.

If the default language is English, EN should appear at the bottom right-hand side of the taskbar. It will be to the left of the clock's time.

To change the keyboard's input selection, click on the EN to see the Locales selection pop-up menu.  Click on the particular language to be able to use the keyboard to type in that particular language.  After the selection is made, the taskbar icon will change to the chosen language.  For example, if the selected language were Arabic the taskbar would display an AR.
