If you mean that the program you want to use is another one than Chinese or English, then you will have problems.
For multilanguage computing you have to set up English XP first. You can then change the language as necessary after installing the required language packages or fonts.

The Chinese XP system does support Chinese and English only. Changing the locale does not effect a proper changeover to the other language and characters other than these will be garbling.
