Windows Language Interface Packs

A lot of people who email me about this blog also ask about Windows Language Interface Packs (LIPs). Windows LIPs are available in roughly the same languages as Office LIPs. Windows LIPs first started in Windows XP. If you would like more information on the Windows can I suggest you look at Rob Margels blog. He gives you updates on when a Windows LIP language releases as well as other cool information about the language space in Windows. There is also a new Windows LIP download site recently published where you can download all Windows Vista & Windows 7 Language Interface packs. If you are looking for information on how to install Windows 7 LIPs please visit this site.

    Hi Adrijan,

    The Windows 7 Croatian LIP is available if you have an enterprise of ultimate version of Windows 7.

    You can follow instruction from…/install-languages-with-windows-update

    For Office, there is no Language Interface Pack (LIP) for Croatian. If you want to install and use Croatian Office you need to purchase an Croatian Language Pack at a cost of £20. You can purchase the English language pack by going to…/product.aspx
    and choosing Croatian in the dropdown and the "Buy now" button and then going through the purchase process.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi Dora,

    I would advise you to buy your Office 2010 Polish locally and then you can buy a Office 2010 German Language Pack from…/basket.aspx

    That way you can change the Office 2010 User Interface and help from Polish to German and vice versa as well as have the proofing tools for both.

    Hope this helps!

    I have a question concerning LIP.

    Im about to buy office in Polish, but I really need to have it in German as well. What is the best solution to have both of these languages available in my Office (automatic corrects, etc.).

    Thank you for an advice.
