Can you change a Windows 7 computer from English to Spanish?

A friend who own Windows 7 asked me if his computer can be changed from English to Spaqnish.  I do not have a copy of Windows 7, so I am posting this question here.

Can Windows 7 be changed from from English to Spanish?

 - if so, can all Windows 7 versions be changed to spanish?

 - if so, does this only affect the operating system?  (In other words, does the change also apply to applications?)

Thank you.

some apps have other language support and will detect the proper language, some don't, some you have to go into the programs preferences.. It is a hit or miss situation.

EEuser5551212--As ve3ofa's posts have stated, Win 7 versions other than Enterprise and Ultimate will not permit this change.  Your friend will have to buy a new Win 7 CD in Spanish.  Or for slightly less money, upgrade versions may be available in Spanish.
