Language Interface Pack

LIP is Microsoft's approach to localisation for some languages, which involves a package that in effect is installed over another language version. The degree of translation of the LIP is on the order of 80% of the commands in the software - supposedly the most often used ones. There are apparently LIP packs for Windows and for MS Office.

African languages with MS Office LIP localisation include:

  • Afrikaans - Office 2003 Afrikaanse Koppelvlakpakket
  • Swahili - Kipeto cha Kiolesura cha Kiswahili cha Office 2003
  • Zulu - I-Interface Pack ye-Office 2003 yesiZulu
