    Ok this is dumb. I have a friend with an iMac who wants to buy Office for Mac in English even though he lives in Switzerland. The local shops only carry it in German or French-fair enough-but they won't order it in English. He speaks about 6 or 7 languages but needs it in English for his work. I just went online and it seems you cannot order another language version than of the country you live in? Why the heck not? It's a download and there may be reasons an expat (like a French or German speaker in the US or any Westerner in China) might want software in his/her mother tongue. Anyone know how to do this? :mad:

    See if they can download the trial version of Office 2011 in English. You can use any CD key to activate.
