Gpg4win includes a full GnuPG2, so you can for sure import your 
(public) certificates and secret keys for both OpenPGP and S/MIME.
Can you tell more about what you are trying to archive?
Import your certificate or the secret key also?

When in doubt you could even use the command line
(gpg2.exe) and use all instructions you can find for GnuPG about migrating a 
secret key. Please also state the Gpg4win version you are using.

As far as I know the applications will detect the language that the operating 
system is using. There are ways for sure to change the language of only the 
Gpg4win applications, but I do not have them at hand.
