Summary: Identify the companion proofing languages that are included with Office 2013, and understand Downloadable proofing tool packages for Office 2013.

Applies to:  Office 2013 | Office 365 ProPlus 

Audience: IT Professionals

Each language version of Office 2013 includes proofing tools for a set of companion languages. For example, when you deploy the English version of an Office 2013 product, users receive proofing tools for both Spanish and French in addition to English.

Proofing tools include spelling and grammar checkers, thesauruses, and hyphenators. They might also include language-specific editing features such as Language AutoDetect, AutoSummarize, and Intelligent AutoCorrect.

Depending on the number of user interface languages that you want to deploy and the included companion proofing languages, Office 2013 Language Packs might provide all the proofing tools that you want. For more information about Office 2013 Language Packs, see Plan for multilanguage deployment of Office 2013.

Office 2013 also provides downloadable proofing tool packages for the English, Japanese, and Spanish versions of Office 2013. For more information, see Downloadable proofing tool packages later in this article.

Important Important:

This article describes methods to deploy and manage language packs for the Windows Installer-based (MSI) delivery format of Office 2013, which is available for enterprise organizations through volume licensing. If you have an Office subscription and you are deploying Office 365 ProPlus, which uses the Click-to-Run delivery format, see Plan for multilanguage deployment of Click-to-Run-based Office installations.
