Changing Language on laptop with windows 7

One of my clients would like to have the language changed on the entire computer to Chinese; I noticed that changing it in the control panel just changes the date/time and some minor things.... thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this

windows 10. Maybe your client can do it that way. However, I am not sure if this separate install or is it consider to be an upgrade. Maybe do a clean install on that computer and wait to see what MS has to say. Good luck.
