    Hi Weis,

    There was a Pashto Language Interface pack released for Office 2003. You can find it @ http://www.microsoft.com/…/details.aspx.

    Hi ITL,

    Are you sure the English version is 2010 and the Welsh LIP version is 2010?

    And does this person have any addons installed on their English version of Officre 2010?

    Let me know as we have not heard of this issue before.

    Hi Iqbal,

    If you are referring to the Tajiki language spoken in Tajikistan then we currently do not provide an Office Language Interface Pack for it unfortunately. It may well be considered for the next version of Office so I would check back here in a couple of years to see if it has been created.

  7. Problem downloading Persian package says:

    I encountered "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found." when I was downloading the Persian package.

    Link is broken.

  8. ITL says:

    Installing the Welsh language pack for a friend has led to Office 2010 instability, Word only starts in safe mode other apps are similar.  Removing the pack and restarting office in English corrects the problem.  Any suggestions

  12. Weis Tokhi says:

    Thank you so much for your reply. I heard the Office 2010 had Pashto, I was tempted to purchase it. Now I am glad I didn't. Thanks again.

  13. Muhammad Ahmed says:

    It will be better if installation also adds better urdu fonts like:

    Jameel Noori Nastaleeq

    Nafees Nastaleeq

    It is unlikely that someone will prefer the default Windows or Office Fonts for writing in Urdu

    Hi Saied,
    Do you have a version of Office already on your machine or are you looking to purchase a version of Office? What country do you live in? If you can give me more details I can be more specific with my answer.
