This may be of some help.

I don't believe that the MUI's are free to download - you have to pay for them.

I also believe that the MUI's only work with the English version of Office. That is, if you want to use multiple languages you have to buy the English version of Office with the MUI. Non-English (or localized) versions of Office cannot be changed to other languages.

...localized versions do not usually support the ability to switch the language of the user interface

You don't need Internet access to activate the M$ Office Products, not unless they started requiring it starting with the Office 2003. I'll do a check on it though. But I'm sure his version is already activated.

Or you could try OpenOffice which has, almost, the same functionalities as M$Office.

OpenOfficeOrg can open MS office documents, and save as MS formats.
