Is it possible to have several languages in Windows 8?

I want to buy a laptop with Windows 8 Pro.

Can I then install another language in this edition of Windows?

And if yes, can you please provide additional information about how to change language?

Yes you can! This represents a change from Windows 7.

You can change the language by

  1. From the charm search bar search language and choose Settings
  2. In the Language Control Panel, tap or click Add a language
  3. To make it a display language move the panel to the top of the list. For example, move the spanish panel on top of the English panel.

See the official kb.

--edit-- Wikipedia says these features should be available in all versions; with the exception of exotic Chinese only versions.

This is correct - I have just replaced US Windows with UK Windows by doing exactly this. –  stuartd Nov 4 '12 at 14:51
    
And what about OS version? Is it possible to change in Windows 8 Pro Edition? (because I know in windows 7 I can't change display language in starter, home and pro editions) –  Pleerock Nov 4 '12 at 14:56
