I have word document with 100 pages.

Now in that Doc i have different language font in one line and then English translation in other line.

Now i want to format the language font only e.g i want to change the color that font.

How can do that without changing color of English font. I don't want to do manually by selecting each line and apply setting

Yes, but is that a direct font application or is it an actual Word Style (i.e. Normal, Heading 1 etc etc) – Shevek Mar 9 '10 at 12:06

Guessing you mean you have different fonts for different languages, if that is the case you can do following

  • open "Find and replace" window
  • select Replace tab
  • click on More button
  • click in Find edit field
  • at the bottom of the form in Replace section click Format and select Font
  • in Font window enter the font you want to change (e.g. Arial) and click OK
  • click in Replace edit field
  • select Format -> Font again but this time just select the new color and click OK
  • click Replace all
