I would like to send a laptop to my uncle in Portugual, but I would like to change windows so it's in Portuguese and not in English (He doesn't speak or read english).  Now I know i can buy the Portuguese version of Windows and Office and that would be that.  But I was wondering if there's a more cost effective way of doing things, so that the menus are in Portuguese and so forth...  Your help is appreciated.

Thank you,
Sergio

According to MS MUI is not available for Windows XP Home edition and is not sold outside of a Volume Licensing.

How can I acquire Windows MUI?
The Windows XP/2000 MUI is sold only through Volume Licensing programs such as the Microsoft Open License Program (MOLP / Open), Select, and Enterprise agreement (or with a new computer as an OEM version at customer request). It is not available through retail channels.
