MS Word for Mac Localisation Updates

MS Word for Mac is now available in the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • German
  • Greek
  • English (UK)
  • English (US)
  • Spanish (Latin America)
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • Finnish
  • French
  • Hebrew
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Indonesian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Dutch
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese (Portugal)
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Russian
  • Slovakian
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)

The language options aren’t quite as extensive as those on MacOS itself — Catalan, Romanian and Hindi are options on MacOS, but not Office for Mac — but there are more options than there were before, including multiple English, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish and French variants. The additional English, French and Spanish options appear to be new. UIs are available in right-to-left languages like Arabic and Hebrew, though I can’t speak to the quality of the localisation or the way it handles those scripts.
