Is it possible to display the MS Word track changes in a foreign language (without changing my entire computer's language settings)?

What I mean is that I want the track changes bubble to display, "削除" instead of "deleted".

Using English version of WIN XP, MS word 2003 (traveling on my back-up so it's all I have, but don't think it matters here). Using global IME input for Japanese like all my computers. I really don't want to have to change my entire computer's language settings for this. I'm hoping there's a setting in Word that allows this. I already looked in tools>options>track changes, nothing there. I searched all over and can't seem to find an answer.

Perhaps someone here has experience. Thank you in advance!

Display will be that of your MS-Word version. I setup my computer in Vista English and installed Office in English. I then installed a French-Canadian keyboard. Whether I work in French or in English, the Track Changes is always in English.

BUT, good news, if your open the document on a French version of Word, Track Changes will be in French. And that's what I get on my other computer, all installed with French versions of most my software.
