Localization of shortcuts Jul 10, 2008

This is an interesting article, certainly all the shortcuts are very useful. I personally tend to use the mouse less and less... shortcuts are much faster, especially when you're typing a text in Word.

However, in Spanish, we find that MS Word has localized even the shortcuts!icon_confused.gif

So, on Spanish MS Word, it's Ctrl+N for bold (not a new document, which I think it's Ctrl+B), Ctrl+K for italics and Ctrl+S for underlined (not save the document, which would be Ctrl+G).

I'm just curious about whether shortcuts are also localized in other language versions of Word as well. Does it happen with other software programs?
