Outlook 2007 Language Issue

How can I switch outlook 2007 to french with the french menus without having to uninstall the English version? I downloaded the french version of Outlook 2007 but it wont switch the language to french when running a repair.

On most versions of Outlook 2007 I am not able to see the "display language tab" in "Mircosoft Office Language Setting 2007". Could this be the reason why I cannot chose the french menus? Why don't I see this tab for all my users?

There are 3 ways to do this.  Group Policy, Office Configuration Tool or the Office Language Settings tool.

Information on these three can be found here:

Note: the GPO Option works really well and can be pushed through network as well as on a local machine In my experience.  I had to do a similar task converting to German not so long ago.

I tried the GPO option and it works great. My only problem right now is how can I remove the english version and then deploy the french version for a group of users if I do not have the Office 2007 Multi Language Pack?

You would need to purchase the multi-language pack and install it buddy.  No way around that one since the French files aren't installed on the required machines.  One of those bite the bullet and give them yet more money jobs...
