Busy busy busy

Hello everyone… My apologies for being away for so long — there’s a lot going on at work (some of which I’ll talk about in my next post) and a lot going on at home, so I haven’t had the time or the inclination to sit down in front of a computer in the evenings. In any case, I’m still here, still employed with the MacBU, and still working on Mac Office 12.

Forget the intel port for now, just get the new XML converters out (at least in beta form) before the end of Jan 2007. I think that this should be the MacBU priority number 1 (see my longer comment on the Mac Mojo blog).

Excellent. Hope Office 12 is going well. The #1 feature that I want soooooo badly is tooltip language translation. I hope that makes it over.

In Word 12 for Windows, there are tooltip translations. That is thru, a context menu, you can choose what language to translate a word. So let’s say you’re reading a French word doc and have selected English translations. Anytime you move your mouse over a word, a tooltip will popup with the definition.
I think Word 12 ships with French and Spanish. I wish it had German without the need for the multilingual kit. I’m not sure if Office Mac offers a multilingual kit.
Since I read Word docs in other languages all the time, I would love to have this. 🙂
