Office language interface pack (LIP) downloads

Language interface packs (LIPs) change the language for the ribbon and commands for some Office applications, and include a spell checker for their language. LIPs are available only for the languages listed in the Links to free LIP downloads section.

If you can't find a language interface pack for your language, there may be language pack option instead, depending on what version of Office you're using:

If a language is available as a language pack, it won’t be available as a LIP. Before you install a language interface pack, you may want to check the differences between language packs, language accessory packs, and language interface packs.

Links to free LIP downloads

The following languages are available as free language interface packs (LIPs).

Important:  You need to install the LIP version that matches your Office version. For example, if you're using Office 2013, you need to install a 2013 LIP.
