When installing the Language packs on base languages that are different from the Base Windows install language -- such as Spanish on an English version you also need to change the INPUT keyboards and Locales in the Regionalisation options as well.
If you don't do that you can hose yourself up royally.
Incidentally note also that you can also apply OFFICE Interface Language packs as well if you want to --these are also Free -- you need Windows Pro / Ultimate or Enterprise for these to work however.
(regionalisation options are in the Control Panel -- I can't post screenshots at the moment as I'm on a test laptop running W8 developer edition which is only available in English at the moment).
