    Hi there
    You can't install extra languages on Home Premium edition of Windows 8 - you need to have W8 PRO or ENTERPRISE -- so unfortunately you'll have to re-install Windows if its the Home Premium version.

    If you ARE using Windows PRO / Enterprise remember that SOME languages won't allow English to be installed as an alternate display language -- you need in these cases to install in ENGLISH first and then add the other language - -- this depends on where you got your Windows 8 from. You install the other languages as Language packs via the control panel.

    Screenshpt enc

    Cheers
