"There are two possible scenarios:

... you have Windows Vista Ultimate or Enterprise Edition installed - the solution is very straightforward and involves you downloading the language you need as a Windows Update;

... you have Windows Vista Home (Basic or Premium) or Business installed - unfortunately, due to licensing constraints, users having these versions of Windows Vista cannot have more than one language installed on their PC. Due to this, additional languages are not available in Windows Update . Therefore, a workaround is needed and I will give details in this article. The solution is pretty complicated and error prone. However, if you follow it closely, it can work."

You can change the main language in Windows Vista using following steps:
1.) Go to "Control Panel"
2.) Click on "Clock, Language and Region" (if view type is in Large or small Icaon mode, click "Region and Language" Icon)
3.) Click "Region and Language"
4.) In the popup winddow "Region and language" under "Keyboards and Languages" tab, click "Change Keyboards..."
5.) Here you can change or add default input language.

Thank you :)

Re Post 2 -

FYI Whatever Settings you set in Language and Region will NOT change the main language of Windows Vista itself. It will only enable you to read & write in another language of your choice. I second the advice given by mavis007.
