Office 2010, Proofing tools & Display Language

    Question

  • Hi All,

    We have installed Office 2010 (English)with the Office 2010 Proofing tools.

    Spell checking and all is working just fine for the installed languages. However, we also should be able to select a display language so we can set Office 2010 to for example Dutch.

    For some reason this is not working.
    I simply cannot select any other language other than English.
    Our install is not GUI driven but a silent install. Could this be the issue?

    Anyway, the install is triggered like this.
    setup.exe /config ProofKit.WW\config.xml
    and the config.xml looks like below.

    <Configuration Product="Proofkit">
     <!-- <Display Level="full" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="no" /> -->
     <!-- <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Proofkit Setup(*).txt" /> -->
     <!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" /> -->
     <!-- <COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" /> -->
     <!-- <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" /> -->

    </Configuration>

    Any clues on why we cannot change the display language?

     

    thanks,

  • Hello Remko,

    I see that you have installed the Proofing tools for Office 2010. The PTK has tools such as dictionary, thesaurus, and other tools that help you type and spell check/research in a particular language. The PTK does not have the ability to change the user interface of Office applications. To change UI for Office applications, you will need to install the Office 2010 Language pack for the particular language, for example Dutch.

    If you are a volume license customer, you will have Office 2010 Multiple Languge pack download already available to download from the MVLS downloads page. If you use retail copies of Office, you can purchase single language packs as and when you need a language.

    Hope this helps

  • Hi Jennifer, thanks for your help. I was quite puzzled when I discovered this. Also, if possible, I have another strange issue with Office 2010 as posted in this thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/sr-Latn-CS/outlook/thread/d400ffef-2b41-4db6-8b66-8452b92266bd

    Was wondering if you could take a look at this one as well.

    Appriciate your help!
