In a multicultural environment, it's important to be sensitive to the languages of the world. If you're putting together a PowerPoint presentation on your computer, you might want to be able to use Spanish, French or Chinese words in the presentation. Microsoft has designed the Office Suite to use the language settings for Windows, so PowerPoint uses whatever language Windows uses. Add languages to Windows to add them to PowerPoint.
Click "Start," then choose "Control Panel." Click "Change keyboards or other input methods." Click "Change Keyboards."
Choose the language you want from the list. If the language isn't shown, click "Add" and click on the language. Click the "+" next to "Keyboard" and check the box next to the language. Click "OK." Click the language in the list, then click "OK."
Click "Start," then "All Programs," then "Microsoft Office," then "Microsoft Office Tools." Click "Microsoft Office Language Settings." Click the tab labeled "Editing Languages." Choose the primary editing language from the drop-down menu. Click "OK" to change the language in PowerPoint.
