How to Change the Language of a Word Document

Microsoft Word has a built-in feature that allows users to convert the current text to a different language. This allows you to adjust the text from one language to another, with only a few clicks of your mouse. Doing so is incredibly helpful when taking foreign language classes and you need to convert your current language into a foreign text. Additionally, once you convert to a different language it is still possible to change the language back to the original text.
