I recently was given a copy of office 2007 in French. Is there a way to change the language to english after it is installed? Thanks

Not sure, but try this one:
Use the Language Settings tool to modify language settings

If you are not enforcing language settings by policy, users working in Office applications can use the Language Settings tool to change their language settings.
To change language settings by using the Language Settings tool
1. On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office, and point to Microsoft Office Tools.
2. Click Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings.
3. Click the Display Language tab.
This tab is available only when more than one language version is installed on the computer.
4. In the Display menus and dialogs in box, select the user interface language.
5. In the Display Help in box, select a language for online Help.
6. If you do not specify a language for Help, the online Help language defaults to the user interface language.
7. Click the Editing Languages tab.
8. Select the language you want to be available for editing and click the Add button. Repeat this step for each editing language you want to add.
9. In the Primary editing language box, select the language in which you will most often work with Office applications and documents.

Users can enable functionality for working in languages that are not installed on the computer. For example, if you select Korean as an editing language, you enable Asian and Korean features in Word even if Korean Proofing Tools are not installed. You must enable support for that language in the operating system.

I wouldn't have thought so, it would be intrinsically French. You can normally get the language extensions to work a product in another language, but the core still remains the origianl language.

If you wanted to sell it cheap ...
