The way you change Outlook's language setting depends on the version of Outlook you're using. For the desktop version, change the Windows display language setting, which changes it for all applications on the computer that don't maintain their own language settings. For the Office 365 version, change the Office 365 language setting, which changes the language for all Office programs. If you use Outlook on Outlook.com without Office 365, you can modify the Outlook.com language setting to make the change.
To change the Windows display language, open the Windows Control Panel, choose "Clock, Language and Region" and select "Regional and Language Options." Select the "Keyboards and Languages" tab, choose a language in the Display Languages section, then select "OK." This change affects all Microsoft Office programs and any other Windows program without its own language setting.
Office 365 Version
To change the Office 365 language setting, sign in to Office 365 and select "Settings," "Office 365 Settings" and "Languages." Choose the language on the Language page and select "Save." This change affects all Office 365 applications.
To change the display language in the standalone Outlook.com without Office 365, select the Gear icon from your inbox, then choose "Options" and "Language." Select the language and choose "Save." This change affects only Outlook.com.
