Yes, they would. Very much. I've tried it. You do NOT want
to do this.

Cindy

Thanks for confirming what I thought may happen. I could imagine some very
conflicting dlls which would be a nightmare to resolve.

I suppose the only other alternative would be to try Virtual PC: at least
you could then delete the version that gets screwed up!

Virtual PC, or VMWare, works very well. I do this all the time. Didn't want
to suggest it, as it's not an easy thing to describe to someone who's never
encountered it, before.

Prior to that, I used separate boot partitions, or separate, "plug-in"
hard-drives.

The MUI packs work really well, too. But they are meant for large corporations and only work with the English enterprise edition, IIRC:

You can, however, put different languages into one
instance of Word, all at the same time. See
Microsoft's support fo the how-tos; I can't find it
right now. My acquaintances routinely ran English with
Japanese, Oz English, and UK English, for instance.

Unfortunately, though, the translations aren't accurate enough (not the same as the local language version) for making screen shots
when writing books or articles...

Sure you can. No foreign language pack required. Doesn't
mean you can run spell check, though, if you haven't
installed and activated the languages. But remember that
most versions of Word these days come with three or four
languages...
