  1. Cannot type any words using other language except English


    I have tried typing with Traditional Chinese and Japanese input or English typing mode of Traditional Chinese and Japanese input. All of them cannot type any words out. However, after switching to English input, it functions normally. Please help to identify the problem and provide the solution. Thank you.

    :)

    Using word flow keyboard with not supported foreign language

    Using word flow keyboard for fast typing with many foreign languages is impossible. But there is a workaround to use word flow features to create keyboard macros (custom dictionary) for not supported
    language. Here is the steps how to do this:

    A.

    1. Switch to your language
    (Bulgarian in my case) and type the desired word, for example
    клавиатура (“keyboard” in Bulgarian).

    2. Tap the word to select it.

    3. Switch to English and you will see typed word just above the keyboard preceeded by a plus (+клавиатура) and tap on it in order to add it to custom dictionary.

    4. When writing text in your language, enter the first letter and switch to English. Just above the keyboard you will see a list of words starting with this letter. If you want to shorten the list, enter
    two or more letters before switching to English.

    5. Select the word from list by tapping it.

    B.

    1. Open Contacts and create a new entry – for example, enter in the name field the word “keyboard” in Bulgarian клавиатура (or
    any word in language you prefer). In the same field you can enter more words starting with the same letter, for example клавиш (key), капачка (cap) etc.
    Add a space and period (.) after the last word, otherwise it will not be used in dictionary.

    2. When writing text in your language (Bulgarian in my case), enter the first letter
    and switch to English. Just above the keyboard you will see a list of words you’ve entered in step 1. (and any names starting with this letter from your contacts, if you have any). If you want to shorten the list, enter two or more letters before
    switching to English.

    3. Select the word from list by tapping it.

    This way you can speed up typing of common used (long) words in your language.

    How do you change Word 2016's Display language?

    (Note that I am referring to the Display language, not the keyboard language.)

    I have configured the default language in a Windows 10 Pro user profile to Spanish (Mexico). It's working fine. All Start menu text is in Spanish and even Chrome displays everything in Spanish.

    But when I run Word 2016 all of its menus are in English. In Word Options > Language the editing language is set to default to Spanish (Mexico). Under "Choose Display and Help Languages" the default is "Match Microsoft Windows," which suggests to me that all Word menus should be in Spanish, just like Chrome and Windows are doing. A second, greyed out choice is English.

    The very last sentence on this Options page is says, "View display languages installed for each Microsoft Office program. Click on it and a table appears. Word and Outlook are listed. Under the "Office Display Language" is English for both. Nothing appears in the "Other Display Languages". I see no option to add another display language.

    Earlier versions of Office had downloadable Language packs but I can't find one for Office 2016, not even in the volume license downloads.

    I've tried this on two W10Pro Ofc2016 computers and get the same results in both. What step or trick am I missing?
