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.
I have installed and changed my microsoft office to afrikaans because I write short stories, but the default input language in the text services and input language box stays English and Afrikaans deactivated. Please help?
It sounds like you need to change your Microsoft Office 2010 Language preferences. Can you please have a look at the instructions @ blogs.technet.com/.../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!
If I click on the button to download the afrikaan lip nothing happens, it takes my to the default download site. Can anyone help me please?
Thanks for flagging this. You raised an issue Microsoft was not aware of and they should have a fix in place later today. In the meantime here are the direct links to the downloads that appear on that page...
