Why does changing my keyboard layout in Windows change my editing language in Word?

I often write in several languages (French, Dutch, and English) and so I use multiple keyboard layouts (on Windows 7) and multiple editing languages (in Microsoft Office 2007). I find that when I have Word open and I change the keyboard setting in Windows (from US to US-International or vice-versa), Microsoft Word will change the editing language back to English (United States), Word's default language, no matter what other language (Dutch or French) I was working in at the time.
Here is a screenshot to demonstrate what I am talking about

. When I change the keyboard input style in Windows (right), the language in Word (left) will always change back to English (United States). Is there any way that I can arrange it so that changing the keyboard layout in Windows does not affect the language settings in Word?
