Office 2010 Language Interface Packs for some South African languages have released

It is with great pleasure that I can announce the release of Office 2010 Language Interface Packs (LIPs) for some South African languages.

 They are free to download and you can find them at the locations below:

The Office LIPs allow you to change your User Interface to the languages above in the following Office 2010 applications: Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word. They also allow you to use the speller in these languages.

    Hi Anna,

    It sounds like you need to change your Microsoft Office 2010 Language preferences. Can you please have a look at the instructions @…/installing-and-configuring-the-office-2010-language-interface-pack-lip.aspx (step 6-12) and let me know if that solves your problem?

    I hope this helps!
