Once it is done, navigate to command prompt (Make sure that you run the command prompt as administrator) and type “dism /online /get-intl” without the quotation marks. If your Windows 8 operating system is set to any other language as default, the command prompt window should display it. If you find that the system is set to a different language, change it to English (US).
