Language Setup

I use Windows XP Home Edition, and have successfully set up the multi
language bar so I can switch between English and Japanese. The problem is
that when I switch to Japanese, the menus are all in Japanese. My friend
uses the same set up, but when he switches to Japanese, the menus are in
English.

There appears to be a way to set the language of the language bar menus in
XP Pro via the Control Panel\Regional and Language Options dialog box, but
not in XP Home Edition. In XP Pro, the dialog box that appears when
clicking the Language tab allows the user to select the language... "Language
used in menus and dialogs:"

This dialog does not appear in XP Home Edition. How can I set the language
bar menus to English in XP Home Edition?

Thanks for your help.

Based on the clue: "Language used in menus and dialogs," I Googled and found
out that one of the computers has the Windows XP MUI (multilingual user
interface) Pack. Below is a further explanation:

How can I acquire Windows MUI?
The Windows XP/2000 MUI is sold only through Volume Licensing programs such
as the Microsoft Open License Program (MOLP / Open), Select, and Enterprise
agreement (or with a new computer as an OEM version at customer request).
It is not available through retail channels.
