Microsoft Word allows you to change the primary language used for almost all features, including menu tools, text and numbering. This change is performed in the "Microsoft Office Language Settings," but you must first have the languages installed in your operating system. United States users will already have English installed on their systems, as will many other countries whose languages use an English base. Having the language already installed simplifies changing the interface from Russian to English.
