    Hi,

    I have a requirement to change the default Language of Office applications
    to English UK not English US. But each time i try to remove it from the
    Office 2007 Language Setting English US keeps coming in again.

    Is there any way to set Office applications to Use English UK only.

    Well, we spent a lot of time trying to do this for a law firm a few years
    ago. It didn't work. Sorry. We set all the templates to the correct language
    and also made a "checking" macro that double checked the current language as
    soon as word started but for all Office applications - no. English in this
    case is always US ;-)

    You need to purchase the UK English version in the UK. That is your only way

    Have you set the "Default Input Language" to "English UK" in the "Regional
    and Language Options"?
    Have you tried to add the registry below?
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\LanguageResources
    Value Name: InstallLanguage
    Value Data: 2057

    Also, the resource below may help:
    Check spelling and grammar in another language
