The Microsoft Office Multilingual User Interface (MUI) Pack extends the capabilities already discussed by providing text for menus, user interface, help, wizards, and templates in the language of choice specified. When using the Office 2003 MUI Pack, you are working in the English version of Office, but the commands, menus, templates, and so on are presented in a different familiar language.
The Office 2003 MUI Pack does not substitute for the localized versions of Word and Office that Microsoft will continue to produce. Rather, it is intended for use in organizations that require either more extensive proofing coverage or multilingual user interfaces.
For more information on Office Multilingual Deployment, see the Office 2003 Resource kit article at www.microsoft.com/office/ork/xp/beta/four/default.htm.
The Office 2003 MUI Pack includes the following in several different languages:
User interface components
Customized templates and wizards
As mentioned earlier, Spanish and French proofing tools are already included in the standard version of Word 2003.
Several TrueType fonts designed for international use
The Office 2003 MUI Pack can be installed only over the English-language version of Word or Office. To install the tools in the Office 2003 MUI Pack, you must run the separate Setup program.
