With Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac, Microsoft have certainly stepped-up a gear with a slick, redesigned interface tailored for OS X and user friendly collaboration tools.

Only available as part of Office 2011

Microsoft Word 2011 is a component of Microsoft Office 2011, which has been significantly improved for Macs from the 2008 version. In Microsoft Word 2011, the toolbar has been vastly improved and is far more practical thanks to the Ribbon interface inspired by the Windows version. As a result, you now have different sets of tools depending on different types of document that you're working on.

Support for full screen mode

Microsoft Word 2011 makes much greater use of screen real estate too. By using the Ribbon, you can view documents in glorious full screen mode which really makes your documents look great and focuses you on the document rather than the toolbars surrounding it.

Also in Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac, Microsoft have added support for SharePoint. This allows Mac users to connect to Microsoft's Sharepoint servers directly and collaborate on documents in realtime.

A vast improvement on previous versions

Microsoft Word 2011 and the entire Office suite have been through some major changes making it finally feel like a real OS X product.

Can you read me? Loud and clear.

Easy reading

In Read Mode, text reflows in columns automatically for easier on-screen reading.
And fewer menus–only tools that add value to your reading–keep you focused on your content.

Easy writing

The familiar Word program lets you create, edit, and share work quickly and easily.
Most people can open and work with a document in Word. It’s the most popular word processing program in the world.

Bring it all together

1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage keeps you connected to important files.
Install the Office apps on your mobile devices and you can access the latest version of your files anytime, anywhere.
Roaming documents keep track of your most recently used files so you can quickly access them across devices and pick up right where you left.

Get together

Sharing is simplified.
Save files to the cloud on OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint and just send everyone a single link to the same file, along with viewing and editing permissions. You’ll all have the latest version of the file.

Work together

You and your team can converse, collaborate and co-author your documents in real-time using Word.
As you and your team make edits and changes to your documents, the improved version history allows you to view or go back to earlier drafts.

Stay on track

Track changes, and add or reply to comments right next to the text you’re discussing.
Everyone can follow the conversation and stay on top of changes to the text, layout and formatting.

It’s professional

Give your documents a professional look—align charts, photos, videos, and diagrams with your text.
Handy alignment guides pop into place when you need them and disappear when you’re done. Live Layouts on your desktop and tablet let you drag a photo, video, or shape to where you want it and the text reflows right before your eyes.

It works with PDFs

Here’s a time-saver you'll really love: Open a PDF in Word on your desktop, and you can edit content, such as paragraphs, lists and tables, as if you created it in Word.
