Windows 7: Language Problem

Windows Vista Home Premium
Language Problem

Good day all,

I tried to upgrade my OS from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows seven Home Premium.

Everything goes fine but I faced one problem ragarding the language compatibility.

So, let's say that Vista has Orginal Language as Arabic and I want to upgrade it to seven with Orginal Language as English. This is not possible, I know but what if I installed the English Language Packge for my Vista and set the default Languge to English, would I be able to upgrade it or not?

Please Advise

Best Regards
