I doubt they are the same. Call MS maybe they would give you the other

No, Windows activation keys are language dependent. You can use a key for an English version only to activate an English Windows.

and when I perform this tweak:

Click start and type CMD, select icon, right click, run as administrator
In prompt type these commands:
1) DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePathpath to your language pack)
example -> DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\languagepack\sv-se\lp.cab
This can take quite a while
2) bcdedit /set {current} locale sv-se (or whatever language)
3) bcdboot %WinDir% /l sv-se (or whatever)
4) regedit

open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MUI\UIlanguages
remove the key en-us

Will this give any conflicts with windows update? I don't want my OS to be half dutch - half english

Thanks for the reply btw
