Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac, To be Available in 13 Languages

Written By Sam on 28 October 2010

The line between PC and Mac just got more blurry with Microsoft announcing the launch of Office 2011 for Mac, bringing Mac users the latest versions of the company’s productivity software. The release, as emphasized by Eric Wilfrid, general manager of Microsoft’s Office for Mac team, is aimed at “customers who love their Macs and also love using Office.”

Mac users can now install the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and, for the first time, Outlook. Office 2011 is available in 13 languages around the world, and by November the suite will be available in more than 45 countries. With the release, Microsoft will be offering Mac customers many of the cloud-based benefits that Windows customers saw with the recently released Office 2010.

So, the new release for Mac will be focused on delivering anywhere access, better collaboration, and professional design tools to make it more attractive. Here are the key features of Office 2011 for Mac:

  • New Outlook that works with both on-premises Exchange and the just-announced Office 365, the new cloud service from Office.
  • New built-in integration with Windows Live SkyDrive as well as connections to SharePoint so users can manage files and work from any location
  • Office Web Apps, enabling Mac consumers to edit Office documents straight from their browsers
  • New co-authoring tools allowing users to edit the same Word document or PowerPoint presentation simultaneously with other people in different locations who are using Office 2011 for Mac or Office 2010 for Windows. They can also share presentations with anyone who has browser access through PowerPoint broadcasting.
  • File format compatibility so users can create the same professional-looking Office documents on a Mac as PC users can with Office for Windows.
