I am giving you below, the link to Language Interface Packs from Microsoft for Office 2003.

 

http://msmvps.com/blogs/officept/archive/2008/01/16/download-lip-language-interface-pack-for-office-2003.aspx

 

Also, there is some great information on the LIPs at the following link. Most of it refers to Office 2007, but also applies to 2003.

 

http://blogs.technet.com/office_language_interface_pack/default.aspx

 

I'm not trying to state the obvious, but if you can get your hands on an English copy, it's the best option, but with the language packs, it's definately useable.

I did know that Microsoft Office Word 7 could be installed in English by a computer man in Holland. When I went to get the computer company here to install Microsoft Office Outlook 7 plus Windows Mail as I was advised these programmes should have been installed originally when I bought the laptop last year. The computer man here in France told me I had to have the French version - can not remember the reason- perhaps because the keyboard is French? Please note that I no longer have any other programmes than those above - everything has been cleared out including Microsoft 2003. To download another language it state on the website you sent through, the language must be originally in English and mine is in French

My question was where can I get a copy of the tool bars or can I revert this programme to English as originally told? I have now spent over 600 euros (excluding computer) and still not able to use correctly

Am I understanding correctly when I say that english was working fine when you had version 2003 installed, but now, with 2007(you said Word 7, but I am assuming it is2007?), it is not?

 

You are correct about what you found in terms of starting with a base language of English, but that was only for Windows XP and before. As of Windows Vista, the underlying structure of the OS has changed considerably, and you are no longer restricted to installing the Multi-language User Interface on an English Base Install.

 

A good, if not confusing, explanation by Microsoft of how this works can be found at the following link:

My computer is Vista ¨Premium but the language link is very confusing; As a computer non techie I would have no idea how to go about the changes. The programmes are 2007

 

My original question was could I obtain English tool bars for Microsoft Office Word 2007, so at least I would know where I was going better.

I do understand that your operating system is Vista, and that you would like the English tool bars.

 

If you simply want a screenshot of the toolbars to look at as a reference, I believe I could do that for you. But if you want the toolbars in Word to actually be in English, the only option is through a Language Pack. This is a more consice summary from Microsoft.

 

To enable another language in the display of 2007 Microsoft Office system programs, you must have a language pack installed on your computer. Language packs enable you to change the language of the Ribbon, menus, and Help in Microsoft Office programs. Language packs also enables you to use the proofing tools, such as the spelling and grammar checker, in various languages. This article can help you if you need to do the following:

  • See the Microsoft Office display, for example, the text of menus, the Ribbon, and commands, and Help in another language.
  • Set the language to check the spelling or grammar of text or get templates and fonts in another language.

To make it as simple for you as possible, the link below will take you directly to where you can obtain the English Language pack from Microsoft. All you would have to do is download the pack, install it, and then you will have two language options in Word 2007.

Please let me know if that will work for what you are trying to do.

 

Also, please remember to click accept. Thank you!

THE LANGUAGE PACK SEEMS A GOOD SOLUTION AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO OBTAIN ONE BUT I FEEL AS THOUGH I AM BEING INTERROGATED ON MY PERSONAL LIFE - IS THIS NORMAL FOR MICROSOFT? IF SO WHY?

 

CAN I NOT JUST BUY THE LANGUAGE PACK ELSEWHERE?

I haven't been able to find it elsewhere for purchase.

 

They do often obtain a great deal of information for their marketing machine. Many of the questions should be optional, with only information necessary to make the purchase being required.

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
