Can I change regional/language settings in windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials?

Client has a production server running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. Unfortunately, regional/language settings are set to English (United States) but should be English (United Kingdom). Are we able to change these settings without causing issues with the server, it's software and clients?
If it is possible, are there any step by step guides?

Thanks for your prompt response.

I will review the applications and see what impact this change will have.

From an operating system (i.e. Domain controller, DNS, IIS etc) and client access viewpoint, I assume that the change in language is achievable and will not cause any issues?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

The experts answer did put my mind at rest that this could be achieved but I was also hoping to receive guidance on what steps to take. Found the following link  http://www.win2012workstation.com/installing-language-packs/ . Whilst not meeting my requirements exactly, it gave me enough to go on. Regards
