I tried to localize the language environment of Windows 8.1 tablet, Teclast X89HD (H31C)

Teclast X89HD (H31C)

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.

  1. Specify the language you want to use
  2. Download and install language packs
  3. Set as language for Windows

Japanese operation flow

The procedure is as follows.

  1. [Win] + [C], swipe from the right edge of the screen to open the charm bar
  2. Open the Settings charm
  3. Open "Time and Language"
    "Time and Language"
  4. Select "Region and Language" and click "Add Language"
    "Region and language", "Add language"
  5. Scroll the screen and select "Japanese"
    Select "Japanese"
  6. After confirming that “Japanese” has been added to the “Language” list, select “Japan” from the “Country or Region” drop-down list.
    "Japanese" added, "Japan" selected
  7. Move to the desktop screen
  8. Open the control panel (press and hold the start button or right-click and select from the menu)
  9. Click “Change Input Method”
    "Change input method"
  10. Move "Japanese" to the top of the list using the "Up" button, and delete it with the "Delete" button if "Chinese" is not needed
    Start with "Japanese" and delete "Chinese"
  11. Click "Options"
    Select “Options” in “Japanese”
  12. Click "Download and install language pack" * If this menu is not displayed, please check the network connection
    "Download and install language packs"
  13. Select “Yes” or “Yes” in the dialog box that appears.
  14. This screen is displayed during download and installation
    Download and install language packs
  15. This screen appears when the installation is complete
    Completing the installation
  16. Click Change date, time, or number format
    "Changing Date, Time, or Number Format"
  17. Select the "Admin" tab and click the "Copy Settings" button
    "Admin" tab, "Copy settings"
  18. Check both "Copy current settings" and click "OK" button
    Specify "Copy destination of current settings"
  19. If a dialog appears, click the "Restart" button

After restarting, it will switch to the Japanese environment.

I just opened the control panel in the restarted Japanese environment.

After Japanese, Windows Update was performed and the remaining capacity of the disk cleaned up was 18.9GB.

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.
