Hello all,

I'm hesitating in buying a second hand Mac with OS X Tiger, Office, iLife...

Thing is, the guy bought the Mac and all the software in a non-english speaking country and I'd like to know if I could install it all in English?

Thanks,

appledu

I plan on doing a clean install anyway,

What I really want to know, is whether Office can be installed in English from a foreign disc?

Yep. I changed my Office language to English on my Windows PC at work here in France, so I'm sure you can in OS X as well.

Really?

I can't manage where I work...how did you do it without reinstalling?

Also, just to clarify, I'm not talking about the spellchecker, but the menus...

I had to reinstall from the Office disks. You did mention that you wanted to install in English from a foreign disk. This is what I did.
