SUMMARY

The Word 2000 Multilingual White Paper describes how to configure your computer so that you can easily work with multilanguage documents.

Microsoft Office 2000 programs let you edit and view documents in many languages by taking advantage of the Unicode text-encoding standard. If you do any of the following, you may want to use the multilanguage capabilities of Word 2000:
  • You work with documents that contain text in more than one language.
  • You work in a multinational organization.
  • You share documents with people who use Office on systems that run in other languages.
