Add Language to Word 2010
Edited by Thor, Jen M, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how to add a new language to Microsoft Word 2010, and then how to change it while typing in a Word document.
The first thing you need to do is enter the Control Panel on your computer.
So we select the 'Start' menu and click 'Control Panel'.
And then we need to go to the 'Clock, Language and Region' section, which is here.
You click on that.
Inside this section, there is a subsection called 'Region and Language'.
In this subsection, we need to click 'Change Keyboards and Other Input Methods'.
Now this box will appear, and we are in the correct box:
'Keyboards and Languages'. The text says here, "To change your keyboard or input language, click Change Keyboards." So click on that.
Now you see, this is the section where it displays which languages are stored on this computer.
English is the only language currently installed on this computer. If you want to add another language, you're going to click 'Add'.
And I'm going to choose an alphabet that is very different to that of the Latin alphabet.
And here we have Georgian, which is a very beautiful and cryptic alphabet. So we click the cross next to Georgian to open up the subsection which is Keyboard.
And we're going to click on Georgian QWERTY.
QWERTY means this type of keyboard because as you see it starts with Q, W, E, R, T, Y. These letters are represented here in QWERTY. So that is the correct language for this type of keyboard.
And we're going to click OK.
And we're going to click 'Apply' in this box.
And then click OK to close it.
Then OK to close this box.
And then we can exit the Control Panel, and we're back in Word.
Now, as you can see, I'm typing in Georgian.
If I want to change between English and Georgian, the two languages which are saved onto this computer, I'm going to press 'Alt' and 'Shift'.
So now you can see, I'm going to write in this Word document in English.
And if I want to change back to Georgian, I press 'Alt' and 'Shift', and now I'm writing in this beautiful but totally unfathomable alphabet.
So that has been a video on how to install a new language and switch between it on Microsoft Word 2010.
If you have any suggestions or questions, then please leave them in the comment section below. You've been watching VisiHow. Goodbye!
