Microsoft has added a Multilanguage Pack add-on to its Office 2000 suite of products that acts as a text translator for documents or even Office commands.
The pack is intended to help especially global companies standardise on Office 2000 as one version supports all languages, therefore removing the need for each country to buy local language versions, according to Patrick De Smedt, Microsoft's vice president of the enterprise customer unit.
De Smedt, talking at today's Office 2000 Deployment conference in Nice, was supported by Gernot Ernst, project manager for the Dresdner Bank. Ernst said that the Multilanguage Pack is key for Dresdner because it "enables increased collaboration between our various subsidiaries."
The Pack also has a set of accompanying Proofing Tools, which include tools for all 37 languages covered on one CD. This according to Microsoft will set-up a global Office 2000 standard within large organisations allowing a free-flow of information across international boundaries.
