MS Word settings problem

    Using Word 2003 on XP Home. I noticed that Word was set to use US English
    and wanted to change that to UK English, which I did via Microsoft Office
    2003 Language Settings.
    Then I find that almost all my customisation settings have disappeared,
    along with several menu items I set up with their own icons, including the
    "Work" menu.
    Tried changing back to US English but the settings are gone.
    *Now* I see there is a "Save your settings Wizard" which, had I used it,
    would have enabled me (I think) to restore everything as it was. Too late
    (though I'll use it next time). It would be a real drag to reset the
    customisations and menu items one by one.
    Question - is there any way I can recover the original customisation
    settings in MS Word?

    Hi John!
    Don't know about retrieving your settings, but for future reference you
    can set your default language in Word itself: Tools/Language/Set
    Language, highlight UK English then hit Default button. Hope you get
    sorted OK.
