    no it don't, you have to go in the ribbon change the language, aside about the MAC, for the second time I tell you ; Microsoft have an Office version for mac too.
    False. You set it up once from the Options panel to add whatever language. Restart the Office app, and it will automatically detect the language being used and switch to that. That is if you disable that option.

    But seeing as the majority of users use Office in English, that's the standard default.

    Did you look at my exemple, it reconize " Bonjour " "fait" and "beau, so I do what you said, it's just not usable.

    did you speak another language Coke ?

    As for your Majority of peoples using English, go visit India and China for fun. alltrue they don,t use all Office we need to type the document in their language if we want they understand. Think outside the box , the USA box, Coke

    That's recognizable French. No other language other than French has bonjour or faire or allons or apprendre.

    I imagine over in China and India, their defaults are in Chinese or Indian. It's also dependent on the default language of Windows. For example, it were in Spanish, as in the whole UI and language pack is of Spanish; other software would use that default.

    Oh boy.... No I don't think everyone in China speaks Chinese. Whatever language default is on Windows is the default that other software will use? How did this become if I think people in China speak Chinese? Geez!

    I don't get it.

    I agree that sometimes this option doesn't always show.
    One way or another, you need to get the language shown down on the word window.

    Click image for larger version
    Applicable to all recent versions.

    And from there: select whole french text click the language and change it.

    Works all the time.

    that's the point, with Open Office you don't need to select the text. Anyway this was just to show that other thing than Microsoft can have nice features. If we was on a Food forum, Coke will come to every posts to tell us how Mc Donald is better than anything else, And me I will say the sunday are better at DQ and MCdo and the coffee better at..... ( I don't know i don,t drink coffee . lol )

    Yeah, I like Open Office. Too bad it has its own flaws like the java dependency... but still runs.

    Good analogy.
    LOL, I don't drink coffee either.
