    Computer (Toshiba laptop) recently crashed and Windows 8.1 was reinstalled in France.
    Unfortunately, all the MS Office commands on Ribbons (Excel, Word) are now in French!
    I have tried all the recommended advice (forums, Microsoft) but in vain
    First checked Windows has "English" as default language
    Then, in Word under"Options Word" then "Standard" under "Parametres linguistiqes", under"Langue d'edition principale", "Anglais" is the only language shown
    Any suggestions would be welcome

    Thanks

    try this
    http://ccm.net/faq/28761-windows-8-1-how-to-change-the-language-settings
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/language-packs#lptabs=win81

    Office should use the default system language -
    https://support.office.com/en-us/ar...programs-0d0f3219-61d7-4d91-adf8-01c0c770d323

    But what I'm not sure about in 8.1 is if the installation of the OEM version of windows only allows for 1 language , which you choose when you first install

    So you may have to re-install
    But other members will be able to advise further - if the above does not work

    Do you think either an upgrade of Windoew 8.1 to Win 10 OR an Office upgrade from my 2007 (Student) to 2010 or 2013 would fix problem?
