Rather than developing relationships with exclusively businesses in their region, it’s not uncommon for a small manufacturer of model airplanes in Iowa to use the web to find the vendor that can meet all of their needs, even if they’re located in Austria. Doing business internationally means there may be an occasion where you’ll need to communicate in another language. Fortunately, for Windows 10 users, it has never been easier to switch your computer or mobile device’s language.

Hint: If you don’t see the language you’re looking for in the list of available languages, you can add and edit your list by selecting Language preferences.

For those of you who are using Windows 7 or 8.1 (or even Vista or XP), in addition to seriously thinking about upgrading your operating system, you can still use ALT Codes.
