I try to change the output language of windows 8.1 (not preview).

I installed a German version of windows 8.1 and try to change language over the control panel as it is suggested by microsoft. But the change has no effect, and if i check the Language options it says "Es ist kein Sprachpaket verfügbar" (No language pack available).

I cannot find a download for the en-GB language pack either, as MS suggests using the control panel to download the files.

Has anybody experienced similar problems and found a solution?.
