Hi everyone,

I need to change the language for the comments of the Word Track Changes function and don't know how to do that.

I have everything in Italian on my laptop, but need to do this in English for my client.

Thanks for advising,

Jessica

Changing 'comment' language Dec 8, 2016

The 'comments' use a standard 'style', which can be edited like any other — so you just have to access that style, then change the 'language' attribute.

How exactly? Dec 8, 2016

Thank you, Tony.

I've spent a lot of time trying to edit the 'style' but couldn't do it. Could you please tell me where to find that edit option?

Thanks,

Jessica

Here's how (Word XP) Dec 8, 2016

I'm using an old version of Word, so I don't know how it operates in more recent versions.

Here's what I have to do:

1) Place cursor within a comment

2) From 'Format' menu, select 'Styles and Formatting' — the S&F pane will open on right-hand side of screen, and in the 'Formatting of selected text' box you should see "Comment Text"

3) Right-click in this box, which will reveal a 'down' arrow 'v' on its right (Note: it might not be necessary to right-click in order to see this!)

4) Click on the V to open a little drop-down menu, which includes the option 'Modify'; left-click on this to select the option, and then you will see a standard Modify Style window appear, where you can change all the attributes of that style — the 'Language' attributes can be found under the 'Fromat' button in the bottom left-hand corner.

When you click 'OK', your style will have been modified.
