    language question


    I live in Sweden but I want to work in English. I purchased W7 Ultimate so that I would be able to use English. My question is if I purchase the "8 Pro upgrade DL will I be able to use English as my primary language? I also need to be able to use a Swedish keyboard.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello RLH, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you will be able to use Engish or Swedish as you like with a Windows 8 Pro edition since it supports being able to change your display and keyboard input languages.

    Hope this helps,
