Default Different language showing when i hover over something

Dear all
when i set up office, i must have selected the wrong language setting.
when i hover over anything in office (word/excel/p/p) and the label pops up explaining what it is, its in another language!

How do i resolve this?



thanks

ash

That suggests you might have installed a Language Pack and not configured it correctly, or that there is a miss-match between the Windows and Office installation languages.

Hi i remember installing a language pack - i thought that was just to allow me to type in a different language etc..

How do i resolve this?

I don't currently use Language Packs myself, so I'm working from memory here. IIRC, the settings you need to change are for either the Location or the Keyboard, which you'll find in Control Panel>Clock, Language, and Region>Region and Language.
