Language identifierThe language identifier (LCID) varies from language to language. Because the LCID is stored in the GUID in a hexadecimal format, you may have to convert the LCID value to a decimal value to determine the language. For example, a hexadecimal value of 0409 converts to a decimal value of 1033. This value represents English.
For more information about language identifiers in Office 2016 suites and programs, go to the following Microsoft website:
Sample GUIDAssume that the first 16 digits of a GUID are "90160000-0011-0407." This example GUID was created by the initial release version (9) of a Retail or OEM edition (1), version 15.0000, of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 (0011). The language of the product is German. In this case, the hexadecimal value 0407 converts to the decimal value 1031. This value represents German.
