Start->Settings->Control Panel->Keyboard __| Input Locales

Add your favorite language
Enable "Switch locales" (for example with Shift+Alt)

ready to use.
NOTE that changing the locale depends on the application, so you may different locales in different applications simultaneously.
If you also have enabled "Enable indicator on taskbar" you may easyly control this.
