    Any change in release date lately (My latest info is end of januari 2007)

    I downloaded it on the 6th, but it was not there yet 😉

  6. MSDN Archive says:

    Hi Jindal,

    You can use the IsSpellCheckEnabled feature for background spell-check in Avalon. The Avalon edit control exposes speller functionality, so that would enable you to check the spelling of free text in your forms.  

    I hope it’ll help,

    Hi, Is there a similar product like Office 2003 Proofing Tools? like Office 2007 Proofing Tools (Which includes Tamil). I am native Tamil from Sri Lanka. I edit a lot of Tamil documents if the product is available please let me know. Multi Language Pack 2007 doesn’t have Tamil.

    I need Croatian interface pack (language pack) for Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise. If somebody now where can i download this pack please help me on mail:

    Thank you so much.

  12. Follow the link above for the modified setup file for MS Office 2003 Proofing Tools.

    Replace the file on the original Proofing Tools CD with this one.

    This patch skips the version check performed at start-up and you can install your 2003 proofing tools on a Office 2007 with no problems whatsoever.

    I don’t know what are those crackheads at microsoft up to but the old Proofing Tools are perfectly compatible with office 2007. (exept a minor glitch with romanian characters)

    Frak them, I’m not waiting around forever and pray they will release a 2007 Proofing Tools pack.

    Take the file it works 100%.

    By the way it’s spy/add/virus free.

    How to install MLI of MS Office 2003 in Windows Vista?

  15. Mister Woofie says:

    In Office 03, it was possible to toggle by Word > Tools > Set Language.  How is it done in Word 07?

  16. MSDN Archive says:

    Hi Mister Woofie,

    If you install the Traditional Chinese Language Pack, you will get a “Chinese Translation” section on the Review tab of Word 2007. It will enable you to convert Simplified to Traditional Chinese and vice-versa.

    I hope it helps,


  17. Mister Woofie says:

    Thank you.  After intstalling the language pack, I was able to add to the Quick Access toolbar a command to convert into Simplified, and a command to convert into Traditional.
