Here is the scenario: We have a workgroup of a dozen PCs running a mixture of Win XP and Win 7 with Spanish language OSs. We'd like to add an English language DC, create a domain, add English File and Print server and add the clients to the domain. Would there be any technical issues or concerns with Spanish language OS clients operating on an English language domain/DC/file server enviroment?

Nope :) DC/File Server don't matter which language OS is installed on them :)
The only difference if for those who will be logging locally there :)

Just do not use language specific characters in server names ;)
