Not sure, but here's something to try as a starting point:
If you install only one language (let's try English), does Word behave
correctly (not crash)?
Also, read the article on language formatting in Word in the Tips section of
my website. Check the language of your Windows installation, and which
languages are enabled in the Office Language Tools. Then make sure your Word
default language matches that of Windows.
After you run the test with just one language installed, also check the
settings for automatic keyboard and automatic language recognition. If these
are on, try turning them off, then test again with other languages.
