Downloading English Computer Programs
« on: February 06, 2011, 05:45:18 pm »
Hi,
I really need to install some English versions of Microsoft PowerPoint and Word on my school's computers.  What is that best way of going about that?  Does anyone know of a site where I can download these programs for free?   Thanks and enjoy graduation week  :)

I don't think you can get Microsoft office applications for free on the internet (legally of course)...

A good, free alternative is openoffice though.  It can do most of, if not all, the same things as microsoft products just a little differently.

I think the website is openoffice.org, but I'm not sure (and am too lazy to google it myself)

just a thought, maybe ask the IT guy that looks after the computers in your school if he has a copy of windows in English
we  have a guy that comes in all the time to replace and fix our PCs and to supply hardware, maybe he would have access to an English version of office too

I second andyfoggy.  The school IT worker might just set you up.  I arrived at her office in my school with a couple cans of coffee from Family Mart and the next day I had English OS on my computer and English Office.

try open office? it's free, and handles all the major file types.
use google to search the site

site:waygook.org XXXX

replace 'XXXX' with your search term
