proofing toolkit for O365 2016 (click to run)
Make proofing tools available from click to run ODT so we can deploy all or selected proofing kits as part of Office 2016.
MSI version has installer
Mac OSx have this already included in installation
We need this for click to run on Windows to support our users as international company.
Install full language packs is not practical as users need to spellcheck for multiple languages in some cases and we do not want everyone on there native language UI.
You have my 3 votes ;-)

Please, 2 years this suggestion has been made, would be nice to include the proofings tools (only) in the C2R installation, just INCLUDE lines in the XML
I work in EU agency & we do have 27 members states & 15+ languages, we do NOT want the full interface in everyone's language (otherwise it's a mess to support users) but they do need their proofing tools
the 2016 Proofing tools MSI is nice but it's 2 deploy in SCCM (& mixing static MSI with dynamic Click 2 Run, plus Office 2019 is coming so more support when O365 will upgrade) & it's 2 products to support, the exe install just have 1 language each, not practical at all
Went on workshop in Microsoft Belgium HQ & the Premier Field Engineer suggested the uservoice for that, so here I am ;)
so just adding the option to install
Edit... Did not download from MSDN but from MVLS :)
I downloaded "SW_DVD9_Office_Multi_Lang_Pack_2016_W32_MultiLang_Disk_1_MLF_X20-42853.ISO" and "SW_DVD9_Office_Multi_Lang_Pack_2016_W32_MultiLang_Disk_2_MLF_X20-42854.ISO" from MSDN
Extracted them to one folder and there is an MSI for all languages that seem to Work fine with the Office 365
proof.af, proof.ar, proof.as and so on
From the root, the "proofkitww.msi" fails to install ("Error 1703, Setup cannot install one of the required products for Microsoft Office Proofing Kit 2016"), but the individual packs seems to Work just fine
If you only need proofing for a few languages I guess that's a great way to solve it
I'd rather just deploy everything :)
I WAS searching for an "Office 365 Client World Wide Proofing kit" and landed here :)
We decided to install Office in all the languages we support (11 languages) and wanted to manage updates through SCCM.
An important thing for others that will do this - REMEMBER to download O365 updates for ALL the languages that you have installed, or else you will get error: 0x800775f6 when trying to install the updates on a client. Grrr! Also we experienced that Skype for business changed its header to the language at the top of the list of installed O365 instances under "Program & Features". Please fix it so we can install Proofing tools again instead of this!

We also have a lot of multi lingual users who need proofing tools in diferent languages. Some of our colleagues have more than three different. In our point of view it is no option to install the full language packs for each language they need to proof. The users only need the proofing tools in the different languages.
Why it is not possible to run the installation of the MSI based proofing tools of the on premise version?
Please find a solution for O365 2016 ctr.

any news on this?
Yes, this is really needed. We have several multi lingual employees who draft documents in various languages and need proofing tools for all the languages. It is not a good option to install the full language packs for each language they need to proof. They only need the UI in their native language and just need to proof in other languages. So this is really bad that Microsoft took away this option with O365 2016.
With O365 2013 click to run install it was still possible to install the MSI based proofing tools and this would work. But with O365 2016 this is no longer possible and the only way to be able to proof in another language is to install the full language pack.
It is strange why Office 2016 MSI installer has the proofing tools option but this is missing from click-to-run. It is also strange why this is available for Mac OSx version but not for Windows.
Please add this capability for O365 2016 right away. Or company really needs it.
