That is what I'm seeing so far.
If you scroll down and look at the Office 2010 options, there are more little flags below the description. (Pic #1) If you click the "See All" button, it pulls up all the choices for Language (Pic #2).
So, in the case of the versions of Windows 8, they only have one language available for purchase, which would be the English Version.
While the same options probably do exist for Windows 8 that exist for Office 2010, this site only sells the English Version of Windows 8.
As far as the other part of the question, I'm not sure. But, I do agree with you on the language part.
