Language identifiers in the 2007 Office system

Topic Last Modified: 2009-01-07

The 2007 Microsoft Office system is available in many languages. In an international setting, you can deploy multiple language versions of Office in a single installation process. Setup combines a language-neutral core product with one or more language-specific packages to create a complete product.

On the source media, language-specific packages are organized into separate folders. Each folder name has a language tag appended to it, in the form ll-cc, that identifies the language and culture. For example, U.S. English language folders are identified by the folder name extension en-us. The language tags help you identify the folders you need to copy to your network installation point.

The language folders included in a fully localized version of a 2007 Office system product are the same language folders included in the Single Language Pack (SLP) for a particular language. For example, the same Outlook.ar-sa folder is used in the Arabic language version of Microsoft Office Standard 2007, the Arabic language version of Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, and the Arabic SLP.

The 2007 Office system offers localized versions in all the languages listed in the following table. Folders for the language-specific components are identified by the language tag shown in the table. The Windows operating system uses locale identifiers (LCIDs) to identify languages in the Windows registry.

NoteNote:
In addition to the fully localized languages listed here, Office provides language interface packs (LIPs), which contain a subset of language-specific components and are designed to be installed with a logical parent language. Elements that are not localized in the LIP language appear in the parent language.
