Don't have W8 yet but, maybe like this. Since I didn't try it not recommending it but, might be worth trying.

What I was asking couldn't be done... "make my control panel, my documents Spanish" but as to what warlock said to do is right which, I already did.

This will make your apps Spanish... I went to the yahoo Spanish website and made that the home page.

This Cd was from USA so I was beat. I totally Forgot the only way I could get this done was to order overseas or ebay. :(

I have used this successfully in Vista. It also works in 7. So maybe worth a try,
