You can install every language on the system if you need.

You could publish a language applet for users to change their own O/S language of UI and add IME (Input Method Editor).

For Windows 7: control /name Microsoft.RegionAndLanguage

For Windows 8: control /name Microsoft.Language

The user have to select Chinese IME first to input Chinese chars
