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.


Steps

  1. 1
    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'.

    .

  5. 5
    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'.

  6. 6
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    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.

    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'
    .

  15. 15
    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.
