Microsoft in Inuktitut

“Every day I use my computer in Inuktitut and I appreciate what an honour it has been to work on this project. I can’t even imagine going back to using English anymore! I know it will continue to improve and evolve, but we have started something my grandchildren will carry into their future.”

As of the summer 2011, six different Language Interface Packs are available for the Inuktitut Language. As shown below, it is now possible to download Inuktitut versions of Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010 Windows XP and Windows Vista and Windows 7. All of these downloads are free; however, you need to have an existing copy of Office of Windows installed on your computer for them to work
