Arabic Microsoft Word Mac


Microsoft announced Office for Mac 2011 at Macworld 2010 earlier this month. Arabic/Hebrew RTL/BiDi language support is still missing. The admins at the Office for Mac Facebook page responded to my question regarding Arabic support. Their response was “This is the sort of passion we love to see! And please, please, pleasehave your friends send. Arabic letters are disconnected. No Arabic support until now. Boy Genius Report has posted a hands on with Microsoft Office for Mac 2011, Microsoft’s upcoming Mac version of their office suite. No word about Arabic support in the suite. However it appears that there is a “Direction” button in Word for Mac 2011.



Traditional Arabic is a TrueType font with Arabic support.
