Windows 7: Will a non-English key work for English install?

Windows 7 Professional
Will a non-English key work for English install?

Hi all,

So I have access to an MSDNAA account with my school and successfully did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional after getting it from the website.

Now I want to install it on several more school machines and noticed that I cannot just get more keys for "English 64-bit Windows 7 Professional" from the website, but that there are available keys for "Chinese 64-bit Windows 7 Professional" as well as 32-bit Chinese/English Windows 7 Professional.

Now, I know that a 32-bit key will work for a 64-bit install, but I'm wondering if a Chinese (or any non-English) key will work for an English install. Anyone confirm/deny?

Thanks in advance
