We have a laptop with Windows XP Pro and MS Office 2003 Pro (non-MUI).  We're trying to send this to China for a user to use, but we are having a hard time installing/using Traditional Chinese characters.  Even when Chinese is selected on "Microsoft Office 2003 Language Setting" as a default behavior, it will not type/input chinese characters.  What's the best way to handle this?  Is there a free MUI pack download?  How can I turn on Chinese on Office 2003 Pro?

Have you made sure that they have got the default IME to Chinese input method for there PC? Simplified Chinese input method is difer from traditional ones. And you will not be ablt to choose them if you haven't got the particular one installed.

To Enable Traditional Chinese input you have to install the appropriate font in Control Panel>Language and Settings>Advance, find chinese(traditional) in the box under the Unidcode setting and tick the box.

after reboot you goto Language Settings>Language>Details, First add Chinese(Taiwan), then you will be able to choose different input method for traditional chinese afterwards.
