German laptop & German Windows 7?

I’m supporting an end-user in Germany who needs to have his laptop upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 in a couple of weeks, when he arrives here in our office in the US.  I’m wondering if there is a specific version of Windows 7 that I need to load on his laptop in order for the default system language to be German, and for it to be fully compatible with and utilize the German keyboard built-into the laptop.
