Exactly what the title says. I wrote a text in Dutch and wanted to check the spelling and grammar. I press F7 and get notified that I don't have the proper tools installed.

The Office 2007 install I ded was a complete install, I still have the disc I bought.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

I really thought it was free, however I have just looked on the website and it looks like the policy has changed

Here is a page showing the localized version then what languages you get for free.

For anything else, you need to buy a language pack.

Technically you're correct, but some versions of Office are probably bought in English only – Ivo Flipse Nov 17 '09 at 15:07
Yes - However, my link shows that if you buy in English, you get - French, Spanish thrown in. – William Hilsum Nov 17 '09 at 16:01
