    I have an English version of Microsoft Office. Is there a way to change the language to the Japanese? Thanks.

    Do you want to change the spell-checking to Japanese, or change all of the menu items?

    If it's the menu items, I think you're out of luck.

    Yeah, the menu items. My girlfriend is learning to use Excel on a Japanese version of Excel but I only have an English version and some of the shortcuts/equations perform differently.

    You can do this partially. Inside your Applications/Microsoft Office folder, you will find an Additional Tools folder with an app inside called Microsoft Language Register. Drag Word, Excel, etc. onto this icon, and it will let you set some editing options to Japanese. Most menu items will remain in English.

    Not quite what I need, but thanks for the help.
