Jun 12, 2008 Sorry Suzie, it's bad news. Microsoft Office for Mac (unlike many other software and manufacturers) does not allow you to change the installed language, it is customised depending on the country of purchase. Click Start Control Panel. Under Clock, Language, and Region, click Change keyboards or other input methods. Note: In Classic View, double-click Regional and Language Options, and then click the Keyboards and Languages tab. In the Regional and Language dialog box, on the Keyboards and Languages tab, click Change keyboards.
Open any Office for Mac application. For example, Word.
Click the Word menu, or the menu for the Office application you opened, and then select Preferences.
Under Authoring and Proofing Tools, click East Asian Languages.
Select Japanese, Simplified Chinese, or Traditional Chinese.
You'll be prompted to restart the Office application to apply the change.
Open the Office application that you want to use an East Asian language in, and open a worksheet, document, or presentation.
All of the East Asian language fonts and tools are available for use in the application.
