Word Style Names in English, Danish, German, French

There may be situations where you need to know the name of a built-in style in another language. This article lets you download a PDF document that contains the built-in style names in English, Danish, German and French.

The style list covers Word 2010 and earlier versions

The style list contains a total of 267 built-in styles, representing the built-in styles in Word 2010. Thanks to Tony Jollans who provided information that helped me find missing style names in German and French.

How to get a full list of built-in style names if you are using Word 2013 or Word 2016

New built-in styles added in Word 2013 and Word 2016 are not included in the current version of the PDF file you can download below.
