Technet / MSDN Subscriber Downloads: downloading the Office Language Pack for your specific languages

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/06/10

In the past the Office 2003 Proofing Tools contained the proofing and grammar tools for many languages.

Not so any more since Office 2007 and up.

So when needing the non-English proofing and grammar tools for a particular VM, I trapped into the same pit I fell in before: downloading the Office Language Pack 2010, I only got the English proofing and grammar tools instead of the tools for many languages.

Downloading them from Technet or MSDN for a particular language is of course easy: for each language you need:

  1. in the “Languages” combobox, select your language
  2. download the Office Language Pack for that language

Duh :)

After that, be sure to switch back the language to your default preferred language ;-)
