In a recent Microsoft Blog post, the company revealed that it is “actively working on a localization solution” for Microsoft Word.
Word for Macintosh natively supports over 200 languages, but it can be difficult to find the right language for your document.
In order to help users find the correct language, Microsoft is currently working on localizing Word for Apple’s new operating system.
The company said that the work on localization is being led by an in-house team, and that the localization will be done using the “next generation of Microsoft tools” and Microsoft’s “native tools.”
The new native tools, according to Microsoft, include “native support for localization, local and universal translation, and the ability to add and delete documents using Microsoft Word’s contextual menu.”
Word for OS X, meanwhile, is a completely new operating environment, which Microsoft says will bring a whole new set of features to the Mac.
It will also include “universal support for native localization.”
Microsoft’s native tools for Word for Windows and Mac are also being rolled out to new users.
Users can download the Word for the Windows 8.1 update for free, but for the time being Word for macOS is not yet available to install.
For now, Word for Microsoft’s Mac will not be available on the Mac App Store, but Microsoft has said that it plans to bring Word for Office, Word, and PowerPoint support to the operating system in the near future.
Microsoft also says that it will continue to update Word for iOS and Windows Phone to the latest version of the OS.
Microsoft will soon be adding Word for Android and Chrome OS to its Windows 8 app store.
Word’s future in the Mac app store has yet to be announced.
