Changing the Interface Language of Microsoft Office to Irish

This is pretty simple and of course applies to any language other than Irish. Just go to the LIP page on Microsoft's web site and download the interface pack for the language or languages you wish to install. By default Office will use the interface language of your PC. You can change this by searching for Office Language Preferences from your Start Menu or Start Screen.

You can then select the default interface, edit, and help languages from the Language Preferences dialog.

Do Ríomhaire i nGaeilge? Change your Windows 8 Pro Computer Interface to Irish.

Disclaimer

This is a pretty simple process. I have only tested it with Windows 8 Pro/Enterprise. It is not clear to me if Windows 8 Core has the same functionality. The Irish Language Pack for Windows 8 RT is not yet available.

How To

From the start screen begin typing the word “language”. Then click on settings. In the second column of search results click on the Language result as show in the image.

The Add a Language dialog will appear as in this image:

You will then be sent to the Change your language preferences page. Click options next to Gaeilge.

Then click Make this the primary language.

You will have to log off and log back on to your computer for the changes to take effect.
