    Different Languages

    I have recenetly started doing some Accounting work for a client in Shanghai. I am getting in via Terminal Server which is very slow but better than flying over every week. When I log in, obviously everything is in Chinese. Is there any setting where I can tell it to give me English for Windows and Office or am I asking too much
    TIA

    You can only switch the interface language if your client has installed the Multilingual User Interface Pack for both Windows and Office. Otherwise, you'll be forced to learn Chinese... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    (And if I were presented with Chinese menus, I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to switch...)

    Re: Different Languages

    Thank you yet again for your incredible depth of knowledge - how are you with fixing ride on mowers.
    Some would say I have enough trouble with English - especially the Australian version but you're right, its good fun writing databases where you have to count down the menus because you know add a new query is the third item on the list - at least I have an excuse for being slow now
    Thanks again

    PS I assume I cannot add the MUI to an exisiting Chinese language server but have to install in English then add the MUI
