Microsoft Office 2010 is a productivity suite used on Windows and even Mac-based PCs; it is a successor to the Microsoft Office 2007 suite. Microsoft Office 2010 Language Packs are add-ins, which enable desktops to support multiple languages, including text in menus/display, Help, Dictionary, Thesaurus, and Spell Checker. Language Packs enhance the user experience as you can pick a language that you are comfortable in and thereby speed up your productivity.
