I have this message in my status bar and I would like it to read English United States, not United Kingdom.  I already checked languages in the control panel and saw that everything was correctly set to US English.

Hi BT,

Try File > Options > Language

There are settings under "Choose Editing Languages"  See if you have the WRONG English setting in there :)

Might be the language ID for the document.

(See: LCIDs at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb964664.aspx)

1. Right-click a blank area of a page
2. Hold Shift while clicking Show ShapeSheet
    You get the document ShapeSheet.
3. Look at the id in the cell DocLangID
    You probably have 2057, but want 1033. Not sure how it got changed.

For fun, I entered 2144 randomly and it showed "Kashmiri" in the status bar.

Thanks Visio Guy - interestingly I had the opposite problem (i.e. the default was for US English when I wanted UK English).

Tried the same fix in reverse and it worked a treat, thanks so much!
