Language identifiers and OptionState Id values in Office 2016

Summary: Find language identifier and OptionState ID values for identifying and customizing Office 2016 language and proofing tools installations.

Use the values in the Language Identifier and OptionState ID tables to configure setup for Office 2016 or for Office proofing tools, or to identify currently installed languages.

This is a reference article. The values provided in the tables are necessary for completing procedures that are described in the following articles:

Important

This article describes methods of deploying and managing language packs for versions of Office 2016 that use the Windows Installer (MSI) installation technology, which are available for enterprises through volume licensing. If you have an Office subscription and you're deploying Office 365 ProPlus, which uses the Click-to-Run installation technology, see Overview of deploying languages in Office 365 ProPlus.

Language identifiers

Office 2016 is available in many languages. In an international setting, you can deploy multiple language versions of Office 2016 in a single installation process. Setup combines a language-neutral core product with one or more language-specific packages to create a complete product.

On the source media, language-specific packages are organized into separate folders. Each folder name has a language tag appended to it, in the form ll-cc. That tag identifies the language and culture. For example, U.S. English language folders are identified by the folder name extension en-us. The language tags help you determine the folders that you have to copy to the network installation point.

The language folders that are included in a fully localized version of an Office 2016 product are the same as the language folders that are included in the Microsoft Office 2016 Language Pack for a specific language. For example, the same Outlook.ar-sa folder is used in the Arabic language version of Office 2016, the Arabic language version of Outlook 2016, and the Office 2016 Language Pack - Arabic.

Note

Language tags are also referred to and used as "language IDs" for some procedures.

Office 2016 offers localized versions in all the languages that are listed in the following table. Folders for the language-specific components are identified by the language tag that is shown in the table. The Windows operating system uses locale identifiers (LCIDs) to identify languages in the Windows registry.

In addition to the fully localized languages listed here, Office 2016 provides Language Interface Packs (LIPs), which contain a subset of language-specific components and are designed to be installed together with a logical parent language. Elements that are not localized in the LIP language appear in the parent language. For more information about LIPs, see Language Interface Packs.
