I'm afraid that if you want to change the language, you'll have to get Windows 7 Ultimate to get the language packs. Of course this is as far as I know, but I'm guessing this is the only way :/

bigless1000 is right. Windows 7 Ultimate let you choose the language packs.

Its your best, and probably only, solution.
