I bought 3 copies of a Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 in french (Microsoft part number T5D-01575) for a customer. At the last minute, the customer asks me to install his computers in english instead. With Windows 7, there's absolutely no problem installing and activating Windows in english and using a french product key, and vice versa, they are absolutely interchangeable.

 

With the fact that I have to download Office 2013 from the Internet, does anyone know if I can download, install, and activate Office 2013 in English using a French product key? Or did I just get myself shafted with $750 of unusable licenses and be forced to buy it again in English?

I took a risk and opened up one of the boxes. Turns out that when you install the software via the office.com website, it asks you what country you're in and what language you want to install.
