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.

Fortunately, for Windows 10 users, it has never been easier to switch your computer or mobile device’s language.
