Hi, hope this helps: If all the text appears garbled or as question marks, then Microsoft Word may not have accurately detected the encoding standard of text in the file. As a result, Word may have used the wrong encoding standard. To have Word use an encoding standard you select:
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the General tab.
Select the Confirm conversion at Open check box.
Close and then reopen the encoded file.
In the Convert File dialog box, select Encoded Text.
In the File Conversion dialog box, select Other encoding, and then select the encoding standard you want from the list.You can preview the text in the Preview area to check whether it makes sense in the encoding standard you selected.
If almost all the text looks the same (for example, all boxes or all dots), the required font may not be installed. You can install additional fonts by running the Microsoft Office Setup program again. On the Advanced Customization screen in the Setup program, expand Office Shared Features, and then expand International Support. Select the font you need, click the arrow next to your selection, and then click Run from My Computer.

If you can changed your language to italian, then i think you are in italy. Well, there're a only two ways to change the language, let me help you with the easier method. If you are using the "all new mail", you need to change it to "classic mail" by clicking the "options" on the right corner of the yahoomail page. After that, you'll see the changes with background and the theme. Now, on the left hand side of the "option" there you'll see the "English", click on the "English" to change it to "English". You can refer to the picture below; (here it is "hindi" because I am in india.)
This will change your language to english. If you have problem, do let me know. Good luck.
