Language plays a primary and essential role while speaking, learning, and working. Every individual prefers to work efficiently and tries to work with the language in which he is familiar or native. For example, English is a universal language. Almost 80% of the world population speak and understand English. But among them, most are non-native English speakers and prefer to work, speak or learn in their native languages.
As for working languages, it can be changed across different working platforms like computer operating systems, Microsoft Office, etc. I am not saying that a non-native speaker can not work in an English environment or platform, they can work and are working efficiently, but as for their will and preference, their native language might do them a favor. Well long story short, if you are looking to change the language in MS Word, this is your guide. Let us get started with it.
