Default Change Language From Dutch To English

Hi All,
A few month ago I purchased a Dutch Version of Microsoft Office 2003 because I wanted to force myself to learn Dutch. I thought that by having a program with Dutch toolbars, etc...it would assist me in learning the language more quickly. Needless to say, this was a bad idea.

To make a long story short, how can I switch my user interface to English so everything(Toolbars, menus, etc...) are in good old American English?

Please help because I am going a bit crazy trying to navigate around in Nederlands!

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,
TuTwelve

Click the menu "Start -> Programs -> Microsoft Office Tools -> Microsoft Office 2003 Language Settings", then you can change the default language in the dialog.

I think it's a good idea to learn a foreign language by installing Windows or software in its version.

Thanks for your help...however, I don't have a "microsoft office tools" folder as you mentioned in your reply. Is there any other way that you know of to fix this problem?

Thanks again for your time.

you can try this:
In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
On the General tab, click Languages.
Click Add.
Select the language you want to add.

This page may help, it looks complicated though.

Hi again,
Unfortunately, none of these techniques worked. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. It seems like it should be a lot easier though.
Thanks for all of your suggestions...If you can think of anything else to do, please let me know.

Sincerely,
TuTwelve
