    Office 2003 + Language Settings

    Hi All,

    I have another issue i have setup an image machine with XP SP3 and Office 2003 on it. All my regional settings are English UK and Keyboard. I logon as Administrator open Word and they are UK but logon as a pupil and the language is set to English US. I have tried changing it but it doesn't. I have checked group policy set everything to UK but it still chooses to use US. I have also change the language in the tools to UK but to no avail.

    Can somebody help me please

    You do need to make sure that the Office 2003 language settings are UK English as well as those on the PC... usually found in Start > Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Tools

    Good point terrorvis... make sure that language setting is set in you mandatory profile! (rename ntuser.man to ntuser.dat, set the language settings, then rename back)

    Excuse the question but is this change of language for the keyboard, Office 2003 or both?

    If the keyboard then profiles may be the place to check. If Office (especially Word) this can be tricky, as the default (whatever you do to the settings) will be English (US). A change must be made to the default .dot (Normal template) but even that may get overwritten albeit inadvertently.

    I have yet to find a way of deleteing the US language - pesky MS

    You must check the Office Language setting (Start > Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Tools) and get it right here otherwise Office will not be correct.

    On the Enabled Languages tab, it says "Choose the language that defines default behavior in Microsoft Office applications"
    This must be English(U.K.) otherwise nothing else will change in Word, Excel or wherever

    Once you have cracked this in your admin logon, you need to do this to your mandatory profile:

    Follow the second post in this thread Creating a small mandatory profile
    It tells you about making a user an administrator while you set this sort of thing up.
