Change interface language Office 2007 on XP?


Abel MacAdam

My Office is installed with the Dutch interface. That means the captions on
the buttons and help text is in Dutch. I would like to change that to
English. I sometimes post questions on the English groups. That is hard when
you use the Dutch interface.

I tried to change the interface language with Start --> Programs -->
Microsoft Office --> Microsoft Office assistance --> Microsoft Office 2007 -
Language settings (or something like that). My 'Microsoft Office Language
Settings 2007' are set to:
Display Microsoft Office menus and dialog boxes in English
Display Help in English

This worked (sort of) in Excel. I have English captioned buttons. The help
text is in English. Word has Dutch captions on the buttons, and Dutch help

What do I need to do to get the English interface?
