I am using Word for Mac 2011 in German. My copy contains the English language settings Australia/Canada/USA/UK. I have a customer sending me files with the language setting English Singapore, and I cannot work with them. My solution is to copy the file into Word for Windows (running with Parallels), work there or change the language setting there and go back to Mac, or I can set off the spell checker in Word for Mac.

I think there are many people using Word for Mac in Singapore. How can I get the language setting English Singapore?

Not good news Mar 24, 2011

It doesn't look possible. Have you tried the forums? I found this:

Seems that you'll have to stick with doing it through Parallels (or buy the Singapore version!).

Not possible, I'm afraid Mar 24, 2011

Yes, Jennifer, it doesn't look possible. I have been exploring many sites looking for a language pack English Singapore for Mac, but didn't find anything. I can post the question in the office for mac forum and continue working with my Windows version.
