Does Office for Mac have spell check in different languages? I am curious since MS Office for PC does not offer full-language depends on where you buy it.

I want to buy Office for Mac via Amazon in the UK, but have Danish spell checker. This is not possible if I buy it for the PC, but what about the Mac?

Howdy You might want to consider SpellCatcher which allows you to use it with almost any program, not just Word. It includes other languages as well.

Mellel 3, NWP 2, Scrivener 2.3.1, Tinderbox 5.11.2
LibreOffice 3.6, Accordance 10.0, Adobe CS4, DTP 2.4.3
OS X 10.8.2

If anyone is curious, I found this online help article:

Help and How-To for Microsoft for Mac Office Products | Mactopia

It basically says that the US version of Office for Mac has a number of languages, unlike the PC version.
