Adding a new language to your Windows 8.1 is too simple and you can do it from PC Settings -> Time and language -> Region and language. Just click or tap the Add a language option and click on any language name appeared next. This would add a new language to the system instantaneously.

Also, while using multiple languages, you can see the language indicator at right portion of the taskbar, for English (US) language, its ENG. Some of you might want to remove this indicator, since you’ve become habitual with what language you’re using in the system.
