    You should be able to add additional input languages from Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Language > Add a language.  The platform is also open to 3rd party IMEs but as there have been changes in Windows 8 and since this is only a Developer's Preview, these 3rd party IME's may not be compatible as of yet.

  • Hi Marilyn,

    Thanks for the answer,  appreciate any pointers for developing 3rd party IME for Windows 8? I understand it is under development but curious to know about IME plug-ins for text input predictions/suggestions.

    Assuming you were directing the question at me, there currently aren't any reliable pointers I can give you for developing 3rd party IME's since things might change in the future.  Thank you for understanding.
