Microsoft has finally released Office for Mac 2011 a few days ago.
Features include: macros and Outlook for Mac replacing Entourage. There are different editions of Office for Mac: Office for Mac Home and Student 2011 which cost $119 and includes: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Messenger. The other edition is Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 which cost $199 and includes the previous apps in addition to Outlook.
As for Arabic language (and other RTL, right to left languages such as Persian, Hebrew), Microsoft continues to dawdle over supporting it. You cannot create a new Arabic document but if you open an Arabic doc file created in Windows then you can easily type Arabic!
This is an ignorant move by Microsoft and it’s only hurting them. We hope that Microsoft releases a fix for this as soon as possible.
