SUMMARY

This article contains the current list of available locale ID (LCID) language codes.
Locale ID (LCID): A 32-bit value defined by Microsoft Windows that consists of a language ID, sort ID, and reserved bits that identify a particular language. For example, the LCID for English is 1033, and the LCID for Japanese is 1041.

MORE INFORMATION

The LCID language codes are used in Visual Basic for Applications, some field codes, and files that are associated with a particular language, such as Help files, proofing tools, and other Office components that are usually stored together in a numbered folder in the "Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office" folder.

NOTE: Microsoft does not provide proofing tools for all languages. For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
