Using Office Deployment Tool to install Office 365/2016/2013 (Multilanguage)

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on


As you know, the default language of Microsoft Office is English (USA). Perhaps changing language is unnecessary if you live in an English-speaking country. But it would be very necessary if you were born in another country and English was not your native language.
Recently I have got many requests for issues related to installing language pack. So I gave it a try but without success. Honestly, I dont know much about this matter. I have always used the english version so I never thought about that.

At present, there is no way to install additional language in english version of Office Volume. In spite of that, I kept trying to find another way. After testing some ideas, I figured out a solution which helps you reinstall Office (there is a option which allows change language).

Supported products:

– Office 365

– Office 2016

– Office 2013

First, if you have Office (english version) already installed, please completely uninstall it from your drive.

Step 1: Download Office Deployment Tool from Microsoft homepage.

Step 2: Extract the contents of this file. You will be left with some files (configuration files, EULA and setup.exe).
extract office deployment tool you downloaded from Microsoft homepagethere are three files in this folder

If you dont see “Extract to officedeploymenttool…” in the right-click context menu, just run this file, accept Microsoft Software License Terms, then click Continue button to extract files.

Step 3: Copy the following code and paste it into a new text document.

<Configuration>
  <Add OfficeClientEdition="32">
    <Product ID="ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="ja-jp" />
       
      <ExcludeApp ID="Access" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="InfoPath" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Lync" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="OneNote" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Outlook" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Project" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Publisher" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="SharePointDesigner" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Visio" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Skype" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Skypeforbusiness" />
      <ExcludeApp ID="Groove" />
      
    </Product>
  </Add>
  <Display Level="Full" AcceptEULA="TRUE" />
</Configuration>

create a new text document

Before starting, let me explain.

Value Description
OfficeClientEdition=”32″ Downloads and installs the 32-bit edition of Office. If you have 64bit Windows, just replace “32” with “64”.
ID=”ProPlusRetail” Downloads and installs Office 2016 or 2013 ProPlus Retail. If you want to install Office 365, just replace it with “O365ProPlusRetail”. For Project/Visio, just use “ProjectProRetail” or “VisioProRetail”. See list of product IDs here.
ID=”ja-jp” Downloads and installs Japanese version of Office. If you want to change the display language, just replace “ja-jp” with your native language. See list of language IDs here.
<ExcludeApp ID=”Access” /> Defines which products would not be installed. If you want to install Microsoft Access, please remove this line. Do the same to the others.

Note: You need to edit the code based on what I explain above. Then save it as a config file using “.xml” extension.

save this text file as a config file with xml extensionset the file name is "config.xml"here are all the files we need to install office

Step 4: Copy the code below into the new text document file.

@echo off
cd /d %~dp0
setup.exe /configure config.xml
pause

Then save it as a batch file with .cmd extension (eg install.cmd).
save this text file as a installation fileset the file name is "install.cmd"

And make sure this .cmd file, setup.exe file & config.xml file are in the same folder.

Step 5: Right-click on the install.cmd file and run it as administrator.
run this setup file as administrator

Note: If you see error, just run this file normally instead of doing it with admin right.

Right now, the installation process starts.

please wait a few minutes while the installation process is goin on

Step 6: After successfully installing Office, you can activate it for FREE using KMS method.

your office has been installed successfully

      Language ID=”ja-jp”

      change ja-jp to the language you need.

      English speaking countries use en-us

      There is no en-GB version of Office.

      Normal. Office 365 in the market very long time already.

      The retail version selling point is can upgrade to future version of office and get new feature update as well.

      So, install Office 365, at the same time , will upgrade to office 2019(windows 10 only). Use the bath file Office 365 to activate, will become Office 365 base Office 2019 version. That meant you still have future Office version upgrade and new feature update as well.

      But if you use Office 2019 batch file to activate, will become Office 2019, no longer have future office version upgrade or new feature update any more.

      This code is for someone don’t want complete version of office only.

      ExcludeApp meant do not want App.

      If you want complete version of office 365, or Office 2016 or Office 2019, search for the according post instead.

      Office 365, cannot have more than a copy in the same PC.

      If you have Office 365 already, can update to office 2016 or Office 2019 (Windows 10 only), but don’t install standalone Office 2016 or Office 2019.

    What does Microsoft Office 2016 Professional Plus include? I feel like I missing some after install.

      ExcludeApp meant the app you don’t want.

      If you want all the app, inside the batch file, don’t list any ExcludeApp.
