Microsoft Office 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI)
Microsoft Office with the Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) simplifies the deployment of Office in a large multinational organization. Because of a common worldwide executable file that is included for each Office program, Information Technology (IT) administrators only need to create one custom installation for users in all countries. The MUI Pack also includes Proofing Tools for Office. The Proofing Tools for Office allow users to create and edit documents in more than 40 languages. Multinational companies can use the MUI Pack to enable mobile users and others to share workstations, regardless of their language, and to enable centralized global Help desks to switch the language interface on their computer screens to match the language interface of their customers. (Some dialog boxes and screens may not be in the language that is specified.)Note The Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) is only available through Open License, Select, and Enterprise Agreement volume licensing programs and is not offered through retail stores.

1. What is MUI? The Multilingual User Interface Pack is a set of language specific resource files that can be added to the English version of Windows 2000, 2003 or XP. When installed on the English version of Windows, MUI allows the user interface language of the operating system to be changed according to the preferences of individual users.
Windows Vista enhanced MUI technology to separate the English resources from the application logic binary files. The application logic files are now language-neutral a.k.a. language-independent. In other words, the application logic files are no longer English-centric. This separation allows for changing languages completely without changing the core binaries of Windows, and to have multiple languages installed using the same application logic binaries. Languages are applied as language packs containing the resources required to localize part of or the entire user interface in Windows Vista.
There is a difference between an Office language interface pack and an Office language pack. Office language packs that supported versions before and including Office 2013 are not free. Office interface language packs for office 2003 to Office 2013 were free. Microsoft stop selling Office 2003 and Office 2007 language packs in July 2011
