    Foreign language in US version of Office 2000 (Office 2000)

    I'm trying something new, and I wonder if somebody out there could lend a hand.

    I have the US version of Office 2000 SP 1 installed on the US version of Windows 2000 SP 3. I would like to start typing in Thai - creating Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, in particular, that are either partially or entirely in the Thai language.

    I have a Thai keyboard, and can hunt 'n peck to find the right characters. But I have no idea how to make it all work together.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction?

    On my Windows 2000, I would start by going to Control Panel | Regional Options and checking Thai as a language to support.

    Then in the Keyboard or Regional Options, go to the Input Locales and select Thai as an input locale and select the keyboard for it. Now the little language indicator should appear in the system tray to let you choose the Thai keyboard.
