English is the standard language in Windows 7 at UiB. The language can be altered. Both versions of the Norwegian language are supported: "nynorsk" and "bokmål". The IT department are able to add other languages to specific computers.

Be aware that the language in Microsoft Office is set to be the same as in Windows 7. This means that when you change the language in Windows 7, you also alter the language preference in Office 2010.
