Windows Internet Explorer 7 MUI Pack
Windows Internet Explorer 7 MUI Pack consists of a collection of language resource files that can be added to IE 7 in order to ease web tasks for non-English speakers.
The pack addresses a large audience, consisting of both home users, as well as organizations that prefer to work with a browser interface displayed in their native language, resulting in an improved workflow.
On the other hand, this solution comes in extremely handy for development projects, as client requests might be bent on a particular language.
Although Microsoft provides separate language files for Internet Explorer, these make quite the short list compared to the array provided by the MUI Pack.
What’s more, having such a complete set of languages deployed on the system may turn out to be a wiser choice, especially for large companies that target a multi-language audience.
The compatibility of the pack is limited to Windows XP (Media Center and SP 2) or Windows Server 2003 with Internet Explorer 7 installed (in English). Any other combination of operating systems with a different version of IE will turn out to be unsuccessful.
Deployment is a step-by-step process that ends in a couple of minutes and requires a restart in order to take effect. What might seem unusual is the fact that the pack will install all the supported languages automatically, failing to offer an option to select only the languages of interest.
This, however, can be looked at from a positive angle: the more, the merrier – you never know when you’ll need them. In order to set one of the languages as default, you can navigate to the ‘Internet Options’ windows and then to the ‘Languages’ section. From here, you will be able to seamlessly add and remove languages from the provided list.
An unequaled advantage is that the pack makes it possible for users of different languages to share the same workstation, without having to use multiple Windows accounts. It’s all accomplishable from within Internet Explorer 7 itself.
As a conclusion, Windows Internet Explorer 7 MUI Pack is a must have, providing a compact set of over thirty language files, that users can switch between seamlessly.
