The information in this article applies to:
 
 - Microsoft Word 2000

SUMMARY
=======
 
This article answers the more frequently asked questions about international and
multilingual features in Microsoft Word 2000.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
1. What are multilingual features?
 
   Microsoft Word 2000 supports editing and viewing of documents in more than 80
   languages by taking advantage of the Unicode text encoding standard. If you
   work with documents that contain text in more than one language, if you work
   in a multinational organization, or if you share documents with people who
   use Office on systems that run in other languages, you or your system
   administrator can customize Word 2000 to handle conventions and requirements
   unique to each language. You can also make language-specific commands and
   features available within Word
 
   Here are a few examples of ways you can use multilingual features:
 
    - Automatic language detection
 
      The English (U.S.) version of Word 2000 comes with proofing tools for
      English, Spanish, and French. When you open a document or enter text,
      Microsoft Word can automatically detect the language of the text and use
      the appropriate spelling and grammar dictionaries, punctuation rules, and
      sorting conventions for that language. Also, when you copy text in one of
      these languages into your document, or check spelling in a document that
      contains text in more than one of these languages, Word can use the
      spelling dictionaries installed for each language. If you have the
      Microsoft Proofing Tools Kit, you can perform these tasks in many more
      languages.
 
    - Correct date, time, number style
 
      When you enter dates and times, Word can format them in the correct style
      for different languages.
 
    - Asian characters
      With a special program called a Global Input Method Editor (Global IME),
      you can type characters for Asian languages into a Word document on an
      English-language system. You can then use word-breaking and text
      formatting conventions specific to Asian text.
 
    - Text editing in right-to-left languages
 
      On a system that supports right-to-left languages (such as Arabic), you can
      edit text in those languages; Word will display and format them correctly.
 
    - Web pages
 
      You can create multilingual Web pages and intranet content in Word.
 
2. How can I set up my computer to work in more than one language?
 
   Some languages require additional system support for entering characters. For
   example, to enter ideographic characters for Asian languages, you must
   install a Global IME; run an Asian version of Microsoft Windows 95, Windows
   98, or Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0; or run Windows 2000. For some
   non-Asian languages, you might also need to install the correct keyboard
   layout so that you can enter characters particular to that language.
 
   For example, install the Greek keyboard so that you can enter characters such
   as Sigma and Zeta. After you change your keyboard layout, the characters that
   appear on your screen might no longer correspond to the characters printed on
   your keyboard.
 
   A keyboard layout program that comes with the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing
   Tools and the Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage Pack shows you the keyboard
   layouts for different languages. You can also download the keyboard layout
   program from the Microsoft Office Update Web site at the following Web
   address:
 
   http://officeupdate.microsoft.com
 
   Although Word 2000 installs many of the files you need, especially on Windows
   2000, in some versions of Windows you might need to install system support
   for multiple languages.
 
   Do the following to set up your computer to work in more than one language:
 
    - Install the correct keyboard layout.
 
      a. On the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control
         Panel.
 
      b. Double-click the Keyboard icon.
 
      c. Do one of the following:
 
          - If you are running Microsoft Windows 95 or later, click the Language
            tab.
 
            -or-
 
          - If you are running Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0 or Windows 2000,
            click the Input Locales tab.
 
      d. Click Add.
 
      e. Do one of the following:
 
          - If you are running Windows 95 or later, click the language you want
            in the Language list, and then click OK.
 
          - If you are running Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000, click the
            language you want in the Input locale list, and then click OK.
 
      f. If you want to be able to switch keyboard layouts by using the Windows
         taskbar, make sure the "Enable indicator on taskbar" check box is
         selected.
 
    - Install one of the following:
 
       - Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools
 
         The English version of Microsoft Word 2000 comes with proofing tools for
         English, Spanish, and French. To check spelling in other languages, use
         the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools. These Proofing Tools provide
         the fonts, localized templates, and spelling and grammar checkers you
         need to create and edit documents in different languages when using
         Word. Other items you'll find in the Proofing Tools are AutoCorrect
         lists, AutoSummarize rules, and-?for Asian languages-?Input Method
         Editors (IMEs).
 
         The Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools can be obtained from a licensed
         reseller (CD assy: X03-80950; SKU: 053-00200).
 
       - Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage Pack
 
         The MultiLanguage Pack provides the translated text for the user
         interface and Help for Word. (The Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage
         Pack also includes the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools.)
 
         The MultiLanguage Pack works with Word 2000 running on Windows 95 or
         later or Windows NT version 4.0. Windows 2000 provides the most support
         for the most languages, and it is recommended for extensive
         multilingual use.
 
         For more information about how Microsoft Office 2000 enables
         multilingual creation of documents, please see the "Office 2000 in a
         Multinational Organization" white paper at the following Microsoft Web
         address:
 
   http://www.microsoft.com/office/enterprise/evaluation/wwapp.htm
 
For more information about the availability of the Microsoft Office 2000
MultiLanguage Pack, please see the following Microsoft Web address:
 
   http://www.microsoft.com/office/enterprise/evaluation/MultiLang.htm
 
    - Install system support for multiple languages
 
      Do one of the following appropriate for your system:
 
       - Windows NT 4.0
 
         System support for multiple languages in Windows NT 4.0 is automatically
         installed.
 
       - Windows 2000
 
         This procedure applies only if you are running a language version of
         Windows 2000 that doesn't match the language you want to type. Use this
         procedure when you want to enter characters for Baltic, Central
         European, Cyrillic, Greek, Turkish, and Asian languages, or
         right-to-left languages (Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, and Urdu) in Microsoft
         Office 2000 programs.
 
         a. On the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control
            Panel.
 
         b. Double-click the Regional Settings icon.
 
         c. On the General tab, click the language you want in the Available
            list, and then click Add.
 
         d. Repeat step 3 for each language you want.
 
       - Windows 95 or Windows 98
 
         This procedure applies only if you are running a language version of
         Windows 95 or Windows 98 that doesn't match the language you want to
         type. Use this procedure when you want to be able to enter characters
         for Baltic, Central European, Cyrillic, Greek, and Turkish languages in
         Microsoft Office 2000 programs.
 
         a. On the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control
            Panel.
 
         b. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.
 
         c. Click the Windows Setup tab.
 
         d. In the Components list, click Multilanguage Support, and then click
            Details.
 
         e. Select the check boxes next to the languages you want to use.
 
NOTE: Installing multilanguage support in Windows 95 disables the euro currency
patch if it has been installed. Install the patch again to restore euro currency
support.

3. How can I enable Word to work in more than one language?
 
   To set up Word to work in more than one language, you can do the following:
 
    - Enable languages for editing
 
      After your system is set up to support the languages you use, you must make
      those languages available for editing Word documents. (Different languages
      aren't made available automatically in order to avoid adding menu commands
      that you won't use, and to optimize Word to use only the languages you
      need.) When you enable editing for certain languages, special features for
      working in those languages are available in Word. For example, if you
      install the English (U.S.) version of Word and you enable editing for
      Japanese, commands for formatting Japanese text appear on the Format menu
      in Word.
 
      To enable editing of multiple languages in Word, do the following steps:
 
      a. On the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Office Tools,
         and then click Microsoft Office Language Settings.
 
      b. On the Enabled Languages tab, select the check boxes next to the
         languages you want.
 
NOTE: In Microsoft Word, when you have enabled editing for a specific language
and installed the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools, Word can automatically
detect that language in documents and apply the correct proofing tools.
 
NOTE: Some languages?-for example, Asian, right-to-left, and Central European
languages?-have system requirements that must be met before you can type
characters for those languages in Office programs. For most other languages, you
can install the correct keyboard layout to type characters for that language.
 
    - Change language settings for text in a document
 
      As you work in Word, you can set the language of the text so that the
      correct proofing tools are used, and you can add language-specific words
      to a custom dictionary. You can fine-tune the ways the program handles
      text in different languages. For example, you can turn automatic language
      detection on or off, sort lists and tables according to the rules of the
      language you choose, and summarize documents in the language you choose.
 
    - Change the user interface and Help languages
 
      You can use the Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage Pack, which allows you
      to change the language of the user interface and Help.
 
4. What are the system requirements for Asian, right-to-left, and other types of
   languages?
 
Asian languages (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)
 
To enter ideographic characters for these languages, use one of the following
operating systems:
 
    - Any language version of Microsoft Windows 2000
 
      If you are running a language version of Windows 2000 that doesn't match
      the language that you want to type, you must first install support for the
      language and then install the Input Method Editor (IME) for the language.
 
    - Any language version of Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT
      version 4.0
 
      If the language version of your operating system is the same as the
      language you want to type, IMEs are included with these systems. The
      Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools includes updated IMEs for these
      systems.
 
      If the language version of your operating system doesn't match the language
      you want to type, install a Global Input Method Editor (Global IME).
      Global IMEs allow you to enter Asian text in Microsoft Word, in Microsoft
      Outlook e-mail messages, and in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Other Office
      programs require an Asian operating system or Windows 2000 to allow you to
      enter Asian text.
 
Baltic, Central European, Cyrillic, Greek, and Turkish languages
 
To enter characters for these languages, use one of the following operating
systems:
 
    - The corresponding language version of Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows
      NT 4.0 or Windows 2000
 
      If you are running a language version of an operating system that doesn't
      match the language you want to type, install system support for that
      language.
 
Right-to-left languages (Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, and Urdu)
 
To enter characters for these languages, use one of the following operating
systems:
 
    - The corresponding language version of Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows
      NT 4.0
 
    - Any language version of Windows 2000
 
      If you are running a language version of Windows 2000 that doesn't match
      the language you want to type, install system support for that language.
 
5. What is Unicode support in Microsoft Word?
 
   Microsoft Word is based on the Unicode text encoding standard, which allows
   Office programs to display documents correctly, no matter what language they
   are written in, provided the operating system supports the characters
   specific to that language.
 
   Unicode is a standard, developed by the Unicode Consortium, that governs
   character encoding and provides a 16-bit extensible international character
   coding system for information processing that covers the world's major
   languages. The Unicode standard defines character encoding, and the
   properties and algorithms that are used in its implementation. The Unicode
   2.1 standard defines encodings for approximately 40,000 characters, and work
   is ongoing to define encodings for additional characters.
 
   Many of the TrueType fonts provided with Office support a wide variety of
   languages that use different writing systems, such as Greek or Russian,
   rather than just the languages of Western Europe; a few fonts for Asian
   languages are provided as well.
 
   The font Arial Unicode MS provided with Office is a full Unicode font,
   containing all of the approximately 40,000 alphabetical characters,
   ideographic characters, and symbols defined in the Unicode 2.1 standard.
   Because of its considerable size and the typographic compromises required to
   make such a font, Arial Unicode MS should be used only when you can't use
   multiple fonts tuned for different writing systems.
 
   If you didn't install the Arial Unicode MS font when you installed Office 2000
   or your Office program, just reinstall Office and choose Add or Remove
   Features. Click the plus sign (+) next to Office Tools, click the plus sign
   next to International Support, click the icon next to Universal Font, and
   then choose the installation option you want.

SUMMARY
=======
 
This article answers the more frequently asked questions about international and
multilingual features in Microsoft Word 2000.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
1. What are multilingual features?
 
   Microsoft Word 2000 supports editing and viewing of documents in more than 80
   languages by taking advantage of the Unicode text encoding standard. If you
   work with documents that contain text in more than one language, if you work
   in a multinational organization, or if you share documents with people who
   use Office on systems that run in other languages, you or your system
   administrator can customize Word 2000 to handle conventions and requirements
   unique to each language. You can also make language-specific commands and
   features available within Word
 
   Here are a few examples of ways you can use multilingual features:
 
    - Automatic language detection
 
      The English (U.S.) version of Word 2000 comes with proofing tools for
      English, Spanish, and French. When you open a document or enter text,
      Microsoft Word can automatically detect the language of the text and use
      the appropriate spelling and grammar dictionaries, punctuation rules, and
      sorting conventions for that language. Also, when you copy text in one of
      these languages into your document, or check spelling in a document that
      contains text in more than one of these languages, Word can use the
      spelling dictionaries installed for each language. If you have the
      Microsoft Proofing Tools Kit, you can perform these tasks in many more
      languages.
 
    - Correct date, time, number style
 
      When you enter dates and times, Word can format them in the correct style
      for different languages.
 
    - Asian characters
      With a special program called a Global Input Method Editor (Global IME),
      you can type characters for Asian languages into a Word document on an
      English-language system. You can then use word-breaking and text
      formatting conventions specific to Asian text.
 
    - Text editing in right-to-left languages
 
      On a system that supports right-to-left languages (such as Arabic), you can
      edit text in those languages; Word will display and format them correctly.
 
    - Web pages
 
      You can create multilingual Web pages and intranet content in Word.
 
2. How can I set up my computer to work in more than one language?
 
   Some languages require additional system support for entering characters. For
   example, to enter ideographic characters for Asian languages, you must
   install a Global IME; run an Asian version of Microsoft Windows 95, Windows
   98, or Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0; or run Windows 2000. For some
   non-Asian languages, you might also need to install the correct keyboard
   layout so that you can enter characters particular to that language.
 
   For example, install the Greek keyboard so that you can enter characters such
   as Sigma and Zeta. After you change your keyboard layout, the characters that
   appear on your screen might no longer correspond to the characters printed on
   your keyboard.
 
   A keyboard layout program that comes with the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing
   Tools and the Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage Pack shows you the keyboard
   layouts for different languages. You can also download the keyboard layout
   program from the Microsoft Office Update Web site at the following Web
   address:
 
   http://officeupdate.microsoft.com
 
   Although Word 2000 installs many of the files you need, especially on Windows
   2000, in some versions of Windows you might need to install system support
   for multiple languages.
 
   Do the following to set up your computer to work in more than one language:
 
    - Install the correct keyboard layout.
 
      a. On the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control
         Panel.
 
      b. Double-click the Keyboard icon.
 
      c. Do one of the following:
 
          - If you are running Microsoft Windows 95 or later, click the Language
            tab.
 
            -or-
 
          - If you are running Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0 or Windows 2000,
            click the Input Locales tab.
 
      d. Click Add.
 
      e. Do one of the following:
 
          - If you are running Windows 95 or later, click the language you want
            in the Language list, and then click OK.
 
          - If you are running Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000, click the
            language you want in the Input locale list, and then click OK.
 
      f. If you want to be able to switch keyboard layouts by using the Windows
         taskbar, make sure the "Enable indicator on taskbar" check box is
         selected.
 
    - Install one of the following:
 
       - Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools
 
         The English version of Microsoft Word 2000 comes with proofing tools for
         English, Spanish, and French. To check spelling in other languages, use
         the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools. These Proofing Tools provide
         the fonts, localized templates, and spelling and grammar checkers you
         need to create and edit documents in different languages when using
         Word. Other items you'll find in the Proofing Tools are AutoCorrect
         lists, AutoSummarize rules, and-?for Asian languages-?Input Method
         Editors (IMEs).
 
         The Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools can be obtained from a licensed
         reseller (CD assy: X03-80950; SKU: 053-00200).
 
       - Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage Pack
 
         The MultiLanguage Pack provides the translated text for the user
         interface and Help for Word. (The Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage
         Pack also includes the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools.)
 
         The MultiLanguage Pack works with Word 2000 running on Windows 95 or
         later or Windows NT version 4.0. Windows 2000 provides the most support
         for the most languages, and it is recommended for extensive
         multilingual use.
 
         For more information about how Microsoft Office 2000 enables
         multilingual creation of documents, please see the "Office 2000 in a

3. How can I enable Word to work in more than one language?
 
   To set up Word to work in more than one language, you can do the following:
 
    - Enable languages for editing
 
      After your system is set up to support the languages you use, you must make
      those languages available for editing Word documents. (Different languages
      aren't made available automatically in order to avoid adding menu commands
      that you won't use, and to optimize Word to use only the languages you
      need.) When you enable editing for certain languages, special features for
      working in those languages are available in Word. For example, if you
      install the English (U.S.) version of Word and you enable editing for
      Japanese, commands for formatting Japanese text appear on the Format menu
      in Word.
 
      To enable editing of multiple languages in Word, do the following steps:
 
      a. On the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Office Tools,
         and then click Microsoft Office Language Settings.
 
      b. On the Enabled Languages tab, select the check boxes next to the
         languages you want.
 
NOTE: In Microsoft Word, when you have enabled editing for a specific language
and installed the Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools, Word can automatically
detect that language in documents and apply the correct proofing tools.
 
NOTE: Some languages?-for example, Asian, right-to-left, and Central European
languages?-have system requirements that must be met before you can type
characters for those languages in Office programs. For most other languages, you
can install the correct keyboard layout to type characters for that language.
 
    - Change language settings for text in a document
 
      As you work in Word, you can set the language of the text so that the
      correct proofing tools are used, and you can add language-specific words
      to a custom dictionary. You can fine-tune the ways the program handles
      text in different languages. For example, you can turn automatic language
      detection on or off, sort lists and tables according to the rules of the
      language you choose, and summarize documents in the language you choose.
 
    - Change the user interface and Help languages
 
      You can use the Microsoft Office 2000 MultiLanguage Pack, which allows you
      to change the language of the user interface and Help.
 
4. What are the system requirements for Asian, right-to-left, and other types of
   languages?
 
Asian languages (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)
 
To enter ideographic characters for these languages, use one of the following
operating systems:
 
    - Any language version of Microsoft Windows 2000
 
      If you are running a language version of Windows 2000 that doesn't match
      the language that you want to type, you must first install support for the
      language and then install the Input Method Editor (IME) for the language.
 
    - Any language version of Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT
      version 4.0
 
      If the language version of your operating system is the same as the
      language you want to type, IMEs are included with these systems. The
      Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Tools includes updated IMEs for these
      systems.
 
      If the language version of your operating system doesn't match the language
      you want to type, install a Global Input Method Editor (Global IME).
      Global IMEs allow you to enter Asian text in Microsoft Word, in Microsoft
      Outlook e-mail messages, and in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Other Office
      programs require an Asian operating system or Windows 2000 to allow you to
      enter Asian text.
 
Baltic, Central European, Cyrillic, Greek, and Turkish languages
 
To enter characters for these languages, use one of the following operating
systems:
 
    - The corresponding language version of Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows
      NT 4.0 or Windows 2000
 
      If you are running a language version of an operating system that doesn't
      match the language you want to type, install system support for that
      language.
 
Right-to-left languages (Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, and Urdu)
 
To enter characters for these languages, use one of the following operating
systems:
 
    - The corresponding language version of Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows
      NT 4.0
 
    - Any language version of Windows 2000
 
      If you are running a language version of Windows 2000 that doesn't match
      the language you want to type, install system support for that language.
 
5. What is Unicode support in Microsoft Word?
 
   Microsoft Word is based on the Unicode text encoding standard, which allows
   Office programs to display documents correctly, no matter what language they
   are written in, provided the operating system supports the characters
   specific to that language.
 
   Unicode is a standard, developed by the Unicode Consortium, that governs
   character encoding and provides a 16-bit extensible international character
   coding system for information processing that covers the world's major
   languages. The Unicode standard defines character encoding, and the
   properties and algorithms that are used in its implementation. The Unicode
   2.1 standard defines encodings for approximately 40,000 characters, and work
   is ongoing to define encodings for additional characters.
 
   Many of the TrueType fonts provided with Office support a wide variety of
   languages that use different writing systems, such as Greek or Russian,
   rather than just the languages of Western Europe; a few fonts for Asian
   languages are provided as well.
 
   The font Arial Unicode MS provided with Office is a full Unicode font,
   containing all of the approximately 40,000 alphabetical characters,
   ideographic characters, and symbols defined in the Unicode 2.1 standard.
   Because of its considerable size and the typographic compromises required to
   make such a font, Arial Unicode MS should be used only when you can't use
   multiple fonts tuned for different writing systems.
 
   If you didn't install the Arial Unicode MS font when you installed Office 2000
   or your Office program, just reinstall Office and choose Add or Remove
   Features. Click the plus sign (+) next to Office Tools, click the plus sign
   next to International Support, click the icon next to Universal Font, and
   then choose the installation option you want.
