My wife has occasions to send emails back to Japan, preferably in Japanese. We use Word as the editor in Outlook.
Do you have any sage words(advice) about installing Japanese using Regional Options within Control Panel? I want it localized to Word, and I want English to be the default. I am not interested in any of the Word help files in Japanese. I only need it in composing text. Her English is excellent.
I think you get the drift of my question. I don’t want to end up with the whole operating system being in Japanese, where my only option is reinstalling Windows 2000, if I don’t like what I see.

Hi,

From Regional Options in Control Panel, on the General tab, under 'Language Settings for the system"  Scroll down and tick the box next to Japanese, click ok and it may prompt you to insert your Windows 2000 CD and also any Service Pack CDs you might have installed.  You will need to restart your PC for these changes to take effect and will be prompted to do so.

Upon reboot, go back to the Regional Options in Control Panel and select the Input Locales tab, under Input Language, click Add and select Japanese.  You can leave your native language set as default if you wish.

On your task bar now you should see and icon for Input Locales which displays an icon for the selected language, e.g. if its english it is a blue EN symbol.

You can click on this and switch between the English and Japanese at will.  The open your application, Word or Outlook, whatever and use the selected language.
(Note if you have the application open already, it is best practice to close the application, change the input locale from the taskbar and then open the application again)

Hope this helps
