I believe anyone who's bound to pray the Office and chooses to use the pre-Vatican II books must pray it in Latin. This is from the same principle that if you use a pre-Vatican II Missal for Mass, it also must be in Latin. You can't celebrate the Tridentine Mass in the vernacular (except for the Scripture readings, due to the permission in Summorum Pontificum which states the vernacular can be used for those).

If you're talking about the post-VII Liturgy of the Hours, then no, of course.

One would assume the priests know what they're praying though, right?
