Since I'm working with translations, I've been trying to find out about the
Microsoft Windows' MultiLanguage Pack and Office MultiLanguage Proofing
tools, but have been unable to find out where to get these tools or what
they cost. Searches for "Windows MultiLanguage Pack" on the major online
software vendors' web sites only turn up a special Windows XP MultiLanguage
Pack version, nothing about the MultiLanguage Pack itself and even less,
about any MultiLanguage Proofing tools
Could someone here please point me in the right direction?

language. The available support depends on your operating system. ]]

Thanks
I found a lot of descriptions of the MultiLanguage Pack and proofing
tools, when i Googled for them. Among them, the sites you have links to, I
believe.
However, I was totally unable to find out, where these tools can be
downloaded or purchased. Are they for sale or are they free downloads?
Searching Microsoft's download site for Office MultiLanguage Proofing tools
only yielded service packs that should be applied.

Thanks for the info,
I have Office 2000 on XP sp2.
I tried to study your links, but found little about downloading a
multilanguage pack or proofing tools, but then your links were to other
Office versions.
Searching for the multilanguage pack / proofing tools, yields a lot of
references to various related Office service packs though.

Several of those links have more than one page of listings. I have no idea
what language you're even looking for. I'm not the Sioux City Public

4 more pages of listings you can look through here:

Hi
I finally found this information, which explains why the multilanguage pack
IS impossible to find:
"The three MultiLanguage Pack versions of Office 2000 will be available only
through Open, Select, and Enterprise Agreement licensing programs, and NOT
available in retail." Which explains why all this has been a wild goose
chase, only turning up links to general descriptions and different Office
service packs.
http://www.helsinki.fi/atk/myynti/MLPKqa.doc
Thanks for your efforts anyway!
Regards
Trond Ruud
BTW: Hasn't OpenOffice got multilanguage spell checking capabilities?
