Updated: November 12, 2009

Applies To: Office Resource Kit

Updated: 2009-11-12

Not every product in the 2007 Microsoft Office system system is available in every language. In a few scenarios, this results in an installation of Office that includes applications or user interface elements in more than one language.

Applications unavailable in some languages

In a subset of available language versions, an individual application in the 2007 Office system is installed only in English. In other language versions, certain applications are not available at all.

When you deploy any of the following language versions of the 2007 Office system, if Microsoft Groove 2007 is part of the suite you are deploying, it is installed in English:

  • Arabic

  • Chinese - Traditional

  • Chinese - Simple

  • Chinese - Hong Kong

  • Hebrew

  • Hindi

  • Korean

  • Thai

The Hindi language version also installs Microsoft Office Access 2007 in English.

Microsoft Office Project 2007, Microsoft Office Visio 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 are available in a subset of languages, as shown in the following table.

Language Interface Packs

For some languages, Microsoft localizes only some 2007 Office system applications and releases them as Language Interface Packs. Users must first install a full language version of Office, and then they can install the LIP. They work in their preferred language in the following applications and features:

  • Microsoft Office Word 2007

  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007

  • Microsoft Office Excel 2007

  • Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007

  • Shared Office features

The rest of the applications appear in the primary Office installation language. The following table lists the recommended base language for each LIP language.
