    Hi @Humera Akram ,
    Welcome to Q&A forum!
    Generally, if you change the display language of any Office 365 app, all other apps will change.

    I would suggest you update Office to the latest version first.
    Then open the Word, go to File>Options>Language to check if there is English under Office display language group.

    • If yes, please select it and click Set as Preferred>OK, then close all Office apps and re-start them to check.
    • If not, please click Install addition display language from to install English package, and then set it as preferred.


    For more information, please refer to: Change the language Office uses in its menus and proofing tools.
    Any updates, please let me know.
