Similar to Windows 7 and Windows Vista, Microsoft also provides ability for end-users to localize and use Office 2010 in their native language, in the form of Office 2010 Language Packs and Office 2010 Language Interface Packs (LIP). Both provides solution for multilingual individuals, families, and small businesses, with the Language Packs available in 38 languages (which equivalent to total language versions of Office 2010 is available in, where the language is considered primary) but is a paid commercial add-on, and Language Interface Packs freely available but with limited features translated.
The main difference between Office 2010 Language Packs and Language Interface Packs is that Language Packs contain localized user interface text for more 2007 Office release programs (Access, Excel, InfoPath, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Word), and more proofing tools than Language Interface Packs, such as grammar checkers, and it’s chargeable for the download. Meanwhile, Language Interface Packs provide a set of tools in a number of languages for popular Office release programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook. The LIPs can be downloaded for free, but unlike Language Packs, translated Help/User Assistance is not part of the LIP download package, but may be available as a separate download for your selected language, and only limited proofing tools are included. Languages that available in full localized version as Language Packs will not be available as LIP.
Ideally, end-users should purchase Office products in the language version that they primarily or mainly use, or work with. However, for some people, multilingual support may be required. That’s where Language Packs and Language Interface Packs for Office comes into picture.
Microsoft has started to release Language Interface Packs (LIP) for Office 2010. The LIPs that available for Office 2010 will be slowly expanding over time. A web page has been set up to list all LIPs that available for Office 2010, Office 2007, Office 2003, where the download links to setup installers are available for free.
Users who interested to download Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 Language Interface Packs can head to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/redir/HA001113350.aspx.
The languages that available for Office 2010 LIPs, together with direct download links are listed below. Note that some LIPs are still in the making, and will be released in coming months. A total of 62 LIP languages in total will be available for Office 2010.
