International Mother Language Day: Microsoft Office 2010 & Windows 7 now available in 96 Languages!

Today, in celebration of International Mother Language Day, Microsoft has pushed the total number of languages supported by Windows 7 and Office 2010 to approximately 96.

Windows 7 and Office 2010 users across a few countries can now enjoy Microsoft’s operating system and productivity suite in Dari (Afghanistan), Mongolian (Cyrillic – Mongolia), Turkmen (Turkmenistan) and Valencian (Spain).

In addition to the languages enumerated above, Office 2010 also plays nice with Maltese (Malta).

According to Lauren Woodman, Microsoft General Manager;

With these additions, Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 are now available in nearly 96 languages, 60 of which are through the Local Language Program (LLP).

This program not only helps us to preserve local languages and cultures, but also helps in finding new ways to create economic opportunities and build IT skills. Through the LLP, we strive to help ensure that the identity of communities continues to thrive worldwide.

As a matter of fact, nearly 1.7 billion people speak the languages that are supported by our most recently released products in the Local Language Program.
