No.

The keys are not interchangeable. But you could have found this out by trying?

Re: language change

Probably not. There are 'language packs' for the USA version of Windows, but I doubt if there's an English language pack for an Arabic version. But why not contact Microsoft sales dept? They should know both their products and the price.

thanks my friend for your answers,

actually, i search about this issue on Microsoft site.

but they said you can't change the language unless if you have Ultimate or Enterprise editions.

one more thing

i heard about program called (Vistalizor).

the program can change the language but the user will face a activation problem, even if he use the original windows.

Yes.

I've heard of that app. Look at that again and ask its AUTHOR if that is true or not.
