    Hi guys,

    I have been looking around the internet, hold on... Let me re-phrase that. I have been scavenging the internet for a Microsoft Office 2013 - English(GB-UK/Not USA) version.

    The only downloads that I am able to find for Microsoft Office 2013 are the Digital River downloads to the Microsoft Office 2013 - English(USA) versions and when I install these versions I am not able to proof my text with the correct language tools...

    If I try to install the English(UK) language pack to my USA version of Microsoft Office 2013 then I get sent to the following page: Link: office.microsoft.com/en-gb/language-packs/

    As you can see if you click on the English option and click on the download button then you will get taken to the following download options: Link: puu.sh/3hfIR

    As you can see in the above download options they are labelled as: "proofingtools_en-us-x64.exe"

    How am I supposed to install a
    Microsoft Office 2013 - English(GB-UK/Not USA) version...

    Thanks in advance...

    Lewis.

    Thanks for the reply but...

    This was the first thing that I tried to do and as I previously mentioned in my 1st post...
    The program tells you that the English (UK) language is not installed and it tells you to go to the following link to download it: Link: office.microsoft.com/en-gb/language-packs/

    Dear Lewis,

    Just download the attached pictures and follow them, I believe all will be OK.

    1) Open Microsoft Word or Outlook and go to Word/Outlook Options.
    2) Go to Language
    3) Choose English U.K. and click Add.
    4) It will be added but we still need to Enable it as it is Not enabled.
    5) Another window will appear named Text Services and Input Language, click add.
    6) Choose English (Untied Kingdom) then check United Kingdom, like in the picture.
    7) Click Apply then OK.
    8) Returning to the Word/Outlook options, you'll see thatEnglish U.K. is enabled.
    9) Now, you can set it as default and/or remove any other languages.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    Mohamed Kamel
