Office Multi-Language Pack 2010 is an add-in product that can display the user interface of the Office 2010 desktop applications - windows, tabs, help, and so on - in 37 different languages. In addition, proofing tools make it possible to check spelling, grammar, and so on in documents created in these languages. Multi-Language Pack allows an organization to install any of the languages on most licensed Office 2010 applications. Users can switch back and forth between languages.
This product works only with 32-bit versions of Office 2010 applications.
The languages included are Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Croatian, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian Latin, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Ukrainian.
Document proofing tools include spelling checkers, grammar and style checkers, thesauri, autocorrect lists, autosummarize capabilities, translation dictionaries, and, for East Asian languages, input method editors. The document proofing tools can be used with or without the localized interface and help. Some features are not available for some languages. For specifics, consult Microsoft's comparison chart.
In addition to the installed context-sensitive help, Office Multi-Language Pack connects to localized Office Online websites that provide continually updated help articles, demos, training, and tips and tricks.
Office Multi-Language Pack also connects to free Office Online templates in the language of the user interface.
Available at No Cost with Software Assurance: If your organization has an Office 2010 application suite with Software Assurance - such as with a donation obtained through Connecting Up - Office Multi-Language Pack is available at no cost as a Software Assurance benefit. The organization must have obtained a suite, not just an individual Office product. Office Multi-Language Pack 2010 will be listed among the licensed downloads at Microsoft's Volume Licensing Service Center in both CD and DVD versions. The CD version is for individual language packs; the DVD version is for all 37 language packs.
