When you install Windows 8 it will let you choose any of the default languages – that is English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese depending on your location. But once your Windows 8 is installed you can still install other languages. Installing Language Packs consumes disk space, that’s why the performance of your system will be affected so it is recommended to use Language packs only if you intend to do so.

One advantage of language packs is that they allow multiple users to share a computer using distinct display languages. For example, one user can use the OS in English while another user will use the OS in French or German. Once you install a Language Pack it will also be available to any other user on the computer that adds that particular language to his/her account
