Assuming we're talking about Word 2007... the following have been mentioned on Techshoret, Word-PC, and TECHWR-L:

* RibbonCustomizer ($30) <>
* Classic Menu for Word 2007 ($16) <>
* ToolbarToggle Lite ($13) <>
* Word Menus Startup Template (free) <>
* UBitMenu ($14.16) <>

I haven't tried any of these, so I can't vouch for them personally. Also, Christine Kent (the Word 2007 guru) urges us to just dive into Word 2007 and never look back... but I haven't tried that, either. :-)
