Support for right to left languages
We are tired of waiting for a real multilingual Office package for Mac. Please bring right to left languages support to Office
As of Mac Excel 15.20, we now support RTL languages – Hebrew and Arabic. We’ll also be adding Thai in the next several months.
As such, I’m marking this as completed.
Great news – we’re working on this feature request!

Hello Dan....I am VERY pleased to hear this! I hope this is true and won't take five years to see see this. Good Luck!
I make spreadhseets in hebrew and ABSOLUTELY need to be able to layout the spreadsheet from right to Left as well as full RTL support!

Good news! We're working on the full RTL version of Office for Arabic, Hebrew, and Thai right now, and it's almost done. We're hoping it will be ready for you in a few months - we're just as excited about this as you are :)

We are subscribers of the Office 365 and some members of the family are on Windows and others are on the Mac. We can't believe that in 2016 Microsoft does not support RTL languages (Arabic, Hebrew and such) on the Mac!!!!! This is such a basic requirement of the top productivity tool in the world. Please don't send us looking for alternatives. This applies to Word, PowerPoint and Outlook too and I will post the same request for these tools as well.

Arabic is still a problem with MAC. cant have the sheet start from left to right. this is very important for professional use.
