As noted you cannot do what you want. Windows 98 is a serious security risk (in the medical profession, no less). Can you use a more modern operating system?

If you look around eBay, you can still find Windows 98.

Note that after you've installed multilanguage support, you simply go to Control Panel, Regional Settings; and you can then select the appropriate language on the "Regional Settings" tab.

We have given you a lot of good counsel and advice here. Do you need more before we close the question?
If the suggestions here didn't enable you to do what you need, then you need to provide more specific details on the medical device you need to connect to the PC.   What is the make/model of it?   ... what interface does it require?  ... what software do you use to control/monitor it?   etc.
Hello
I am trying but it is difficult to change the language even with your valuable suggestions. ..
You have to reinstall Windows 98 to change the language. That is what we were saying above.
I tries to set english win 98 on anothe Pc and change the hard drive.
But they lock the hard also...
You can't change the language as I already mentioned earlier. The localization changes that can be done are just for other keyboard layouts, or different codepages etc so that characters used in different languages are displayed properly, or for making sure currencies and date/time settings are properly displayed for your location.

To change the interface language of the OS you must do a fresh installation using the appropriate installation media for that language.
