Re: Russian fonts in Excel

Thanks for your mail. Mac Excel X supports Mac Roman characters and, if
registered as Japanese or when using Japanese Excel X, Mac Japanese

Russian/Cyrillic characters won't display correctly as you have seen. I
don't know of any work around. However, we are aware of customer interest in
expanding the characters supported by Mac Office applications and are
looking into it.

BTW, registration of Excel (or Word...) for Japanese only seems to be
available for people using the US version of Office...

Hello all, is there a language support (spell checker) for Cheque and Russian (Office Mac 2004) ? I was looking for a long while on, but I am really not sure. What are doing the "Proofing Tools" ?

I am running only mac in windows environment (server WIN2K, workstations WIN2K and WIN XP). We have many Word documents which have embedded Excel sheets. We use these files for financial calculation. Most of the time these files are created on WINTEL machine using Word 2003. When I try to open these files on MAC (OS X 10.4.1, Word 2004), I can read no problem all Word documents with Exception of embedded Excel sheet. In this table English part is OK, russian - some rubbish. I double click on the table, it opens Excel 2004. Now in Excel window all text is clear. But after I close Excel - in the original Word document nothing changes. Only the table grows and does not fit page anymore. if I change fonts in Excel sheet and close it, it looks OK, but now Windows users can not read it. Excel part and Word part of the document use the same font (Arial or Times New roman). what can this be? Or must I identify the problem more clearly?

I have got two MS Office 2007 versions. One in Russian and one in English. I would like to have the English User-Interface but the proofing tools that come with the Russian version (i.e. Russian, Ukrainian and German). When I tried to install the Russian version on the computer where I already have installed the English version, it is not possible to install the proofing tools from the Russian office CD (they are just not shown during the setup) and If I install the Russian version I can not switch the UI back to English. Any Help (without paying another xxx US$ for the mulit-language pack) would be appreciated.

Can't read Russian text of Word file

I was sent a Russian text by the author but all I can read are the few words in Latin letters. I'm using Word 2004 with the latest updates. The displayed font is Times New Roman. How do I read it? Isn't Unicode built into this version? Normally I don't have problems reading Russian Word files? Does the author need to save it differently? Regards, Gary
