The Office 2010 “Language Interface Packs” (LIPs) have started rolling out and are now available for Basque, Catalan, Galician and Serbian Cyrillic.
62 LIP languages in total will be available for Office 2010 over the coming months – in addition to the 38 “full” languages that have already shipped.
A “Language Interface Pack” is a translated user interface that installs on top of a copy of Microsoft Office 2010. The LIP can be downloaded and installed for free and includes spell checkers in these languages. Once the LIP is installed and configured, you can change the user interface for Microsoft Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word to your LIP language and use the spell checker in the language.
See the full table of what’s available for all Office versions (Office 2003, 2007 and 2010) here or subscribe to the Office Language Interface Pack blog to get the announcements as new languages release.
The translations of key terminology and UI strings for these languages will become available on the Microsoft Language Portal in October.
Install points for these first four Office 2010 LIP languages:
I was wondering why I must have a spanish version of "Office 2010" to install this LIP package. Is there any reason to force users to buy the Office 2010 spanish version? Why don't just allow anyone to install this LIP on any Office 2010 version?
Can't understand why.
You do not need to have a Spanish version of Office 2010. You can install a LIP on any language version of the 2010 Office product.
