    Word 2010, Win8.1 how to get hyphenation + other questions

    Hello! I have Windows 8.1 and my Microsoft Word 2010. My computer is in English and so is my Word. But as I live in Finland, I need to create documents in Finnish, and that is a language that uses hyphenation a lot. But it doesn't work!

    I have tried: making sure that the box is marked with automatic hyphenation
    selecting language as finnish
    highlighting and non-highliting the text I want hyphenated
    there is also a box in hyphenation options, it is also checked
    editing the "normal" style option
    downloading the language pack for word 2010 (it just told me no changes were made)
    putting in the installin disk and "re-installing" stuff
    from my computer's programs and features clicking change and "adding features".

    Sometimes (and this is random, word doesn't have to be open even) my computer informs me that I need the disk to make hyphenation work. But I have used the disk.

    Does anyone have any idea what to do? My university requires hyphenation in all of my essays so I am pretty desperate. Also some other quick questions if someone wants to help:

    Why does my word rename each blank document, eg document 1 and next time I open it's document 2 even though I did not save anything as document 1?

    Also, is there a fix so that when I for example want to bold my title, so that the rest of the text doesn' automatically go bold? It's really annoying to always click ctrl+z to get the rest of the text back to nomal.

    Thanks so much if you can help!

    Perhaps it would be best if you used the Windows Eight Forum for this problem.

    Have you tried setting your computer language to Finnish as well Word, to see if that will work.

    Whoops, wrong forum, I'll try the other one. The thing is I like having my computer in English because every single computer I have owned has been in English so it's much easier to use Windows like that
