Q&A

Q1:Is there a default keyboard shortcut to switch among installed input languages in the Language bar?
A1: Yes. The default shortcut is Left Alt+Shift. This shortcut toggles you through the input languages in the order in which they appear in the Keyboard Layout Indicator menu. In addition, you can define keyboard shortcuts to switch into specific languages. To find out more, see the tip at the end of “Using the Language Bar” in this hour.
Q2:I write documents for readers in other English-speaking countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Do I need to install language support for them?
A2: Yes, if you want all of the language support that Windows XP has to offer. Windows XP supports 13 different “flavors” of English, all of which you install by following the steps in the “Windows XP Configuration” section earlier in this hour. If you want to work with documents written in Australia, Canada, or U.K.-based English, you will also want to install Microsoft Office support for the desired language option using the steps in the “Office 2003 Configuration” section.
Q3:I've installed Office support for U.K. English and turned on the Detect Language Automatically option for proofing, but Word doesn't seem to detect when I'm typing using U.K English versus U.S. English. What should I do to get Word to use the correct proofing tools?
A3: You can “manually” set the correct language. To do so, select the text and then choose Tools, Language, Set Language. In the Language dialog box, select English (U.K.), and then click OK.
Q4:Up until now my company has been using Word and TwinBridge for our East Asian language (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) word processing. Can we continue to use it with Word 2003?
A4: Yes. TwinBridge works with Word 2003 and provides excellent East Asian font support. If you're already comfortable working with TwinBridge there is no reason to switch input methods. Check their Web site (www.twinbridge.com) for any updates.
