    Change language setting (XP)

    As a translator I receive PPT for translation.
    With PPT, this usually means typing over the existing text in a different language.
    If the slides use a template, I can change the template's language setting. However, if the slides use text boxes, I do not know how to change the language setting of the entire presentation (including all text boxes) other than by selecting all the boxes on each slide then changing the language setting one slide at a time.
    Does anyone know of a shortcut allowing me to change the language setting of all text boxes in a presentation with a single command?
