Well, if you want English.

Most Windows 8.1 tablets from China ship with only the Chinese language installed.

    It’s due to the fact that his version of windows 8.1 with Bing is either the normal or N version. Unfortunately with your device as with mine, we have ended up with Windows 8.1 with Bing – China. Which almost the same as the single language version. However the only issue is that unlike the single language version, you are unable to even manually force windows to use another language pack. Users with SL versions have had success with using cmd and manually installing the language pack and then uninstalling the previous one. However with the China version, the language packs are set up differently. When you try to use the same solution it bricks the device. I have yet to find a solution to this problem, if you guys find anything let me know.
