I purchased Teclast's 7.9-inch thin and light Windows 8.1 tablet, X89HD (H31C), but since the original language was set to Chinese, I tried to translate it into Japanese.

Background to writing this article
That said, Windows originally supports changing the language settings, so you can simply switch using that feature.
What was hard for me was not knowing what was written in Chinese.
Therefore, in this captured image, only the necessary part is shown, but the notation in Japanese is also written.
I would be happy if I could buy a Chinese tablet in the same way, but it would be helpful to say that the movement was different because I didn't know enough from the seller's explanation.
Overview of Japanese localization
I mentioned earlier that Windows originally supports multiple languages, but Microsoft provides supported languages in the form of language packs.
Download and install this language pack and set it to Windows as your language.
The settings are actually performed according to the following flow.
- Specify the language you want to use
- Download and install language packs
- Set as language for Windows
Japanese operation flow
The procedure is as follows.
- [Win] + [C], swipe from the right edge of the screen to open the charm bar
- Open the Settings charm
- Open "Time and Language"
- Select "Region and Language" and click "Add Language"
- Scroll the screen and select "Japanese"
- After confirming that “Japanese” has been added to the “Language” list, select “Japan” from the “Country or Region” drop-down list.
- Move to the desktop screen
- Open the control panel (press and hold the start button or right-click and select from the menu)
- Click “Change Input Method”
- Move "Japanese" to the top of the list using the "Up" button, and delete it with the "Delete" button if "Chinese" is not needed
- Click "Options"
- Click "Download and install language pack" * If this menu is not displayed, please check the network connection
- Select “Yes” or “Yes” in the dialog box that appears.
- This screen is displayed during download and installation
- This screen appears when the installation is complete
- Click Change date, time, or number format
- Select the "Admin" tab and click the "Copy Settings" button
- Check both "Copy current settings" and click "OK" button
- If a dialog appears, click the "Restart" button
After restarting, it will switch to the Japanese environment.
If only the above procedure is used, software that changes fonts depending on the OS locale setting, such as ATOK, may be garbled.
In such a case, you can fix it by specifying "Japanese (Japan)" in "Change system locale" in step 17 above.
This article is not limited to the Chinese pad, but it can be used when you want to use the language pack to switch the Windows display language.
I think it can be used to check the display of foreign languages such as English for development.
