vistaDon’t get confused by the title. As a matter of fact I am not talking about the Windows MUI (Multilingual User Interface) and I am not referring about the possibility to change your operating system language into something else of your choice (this option is available in Windows Vista Ultimate only). Here, I am talking about the opportunity to enable your keyboard for other languages in order to write in whatever language you want. Here is the trick to follow:

  1. Click Start.
  2. In the Search Bar, type Regional and hit Enter.
  3. Select the Keyboard and Languages tab and click on the Change Keyboard button.
  4. On the General tab, click the Add button and select, by ticking the checkboxes, all the languages you wish to add.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Now select the General tab.
  7. Still on the General Tab, under Default Input language, set your default keyboard.
  8. Now, let’s configure the Language bar. Select the Language bar tab.
  9. Under Language bar, select Floating on Desktop.
  10. Tick  the box beside Show additional Language bar icons in the taskbar.
  11. Now select the Advanced Key Setting tab.
  12. Under To Turn Off caps Lock, check press the SHIFT Key.
  13. Under Hot keys for input language, highlight between input Languages. In this way you will be able to switch between keyboards and languages by press the key combination you chose.

    I followed the instructions and got through it, no problem. However, I still can’t write in the foreign language of my choosing even though I’m able to shift between the default (english) and my chosen language (korean). HELP?!
