Responding to Office Language Settings

One major advance, starting with the release of Office 2000, is that there is a single set of executables, with a set of plug-in language packs (whereas in prior versions, each language was a different executable, with its own set of bugs). This makes it very easy for users of Office to have their own choice of language for the user interface, help files, and so on. In fact, if a number of people share the same computer, each person can run the Office applications in a different language.

As a developer of Excel applications, you must respect the user's language selection and do as much as you can to present your own user interface in their choice of language.
