Outlook Addin language setting

Hi all,

I have just installed the Outlook Addin and am wondering why it was installed in German instead of English. I am running an English Windows 8.1 and English Microsoft Outlook 2013. Only my language preferences are currently in German.I was having the Addin in English the last time I installed it. But due to a change of my Laptop I had to install it again today.

Any suggestions? Is there a config file one might manipulate?

Thanks and regards,

The language of the addin is controlled by the current default language in Internet Explorer. It tries to get the language settings of IE, if it fails then it picks the language of the OS.

Try installing the English language pack of .Net and set the language of IE to English. Restart Outlook.
