If you have Enterprise or Ultimate edition, yes. Just download the langauge packs from the Windows Update Optional Updates.

This is the link for Vista, but the process is the same for Win7:

And you will find it by starting Windows Update. Under optional updates for the ultimate edition of Vista at least, you will find the language packs enumerated for update.

If you dont have Enterprise or Ultimate and you dont want to upgrade (I believe its $129 to upgrade), you can still add language support to at least be able to input Spanish characters.

To allow input:
Control Panel- Change keyboards and other input methods tab link. Click Change Keyboards|General tab click Add and select language for input.
