The Office 2010 Language Interface Pack for Albanian (Shqip) is now available for free download!

A Language Interface Pack allows you to change the user interface in the following Office 2010 applications: Excel, OneNote, InfoPath, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word. The pack includes a spell checker and is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.


  • Albanian is spoken by the entire population of Albania (about 3 million), another 1.5 million in the disputed region of Kosovo, and about 600,000 in Macedonia (FYROM). Isolated and long-established pockets of Albanian exist in Greece and the south of Italy.
  • The name Albanian comes from a Latin term for a tribe of the region, the Albani. In the language itself, Albanian is called shqip.
  • Albanian sometimes employs terms that help avoiding taboo words so that no bad luck is generated by naming the real thing: A wolf might be called “mbyllizogojën” (derived from an expression meaning May God close his mouth!), a fairy “shtozovalle” (from an expression meaning May God increase their round-dances!).

  • Doesn't seem to work.

    Just installed it, ran spell check,  a pop up window comes up saying "The spelling and grammar check is complete" , which is not the case, as I have misspelled words in my document.

  • Valon - you need to change your proofing language, the likelihood is your proofing tools default to the . language you had originally installed. More information on how to do this can be found @

  • I cant download it from the link

  • Great stuff, runs like a charm, download and install took about a minute :) Thanks.

  • Hi there. Why is Albanian not in the Proofing Tools 2010 Collection? Cheers.
