Hello All,

I've searched everywhere for an answer to my problem.
I hope you guys can help me.

Linux Mint 14 KDE
OS Version: Linux 3.5.0-17-generic
KDE SC Version: 4.9.5

Play On Linux: 4.2
Wine: 1.4.1

Office 2010
Word: 14.0.6023.1000

In Linux Mint, I can use all the characters of my language, IE: gedit
but when I launce Word 2010, The charcters won't work. Alt just toggles the menus.
NO matter what I try I cannot type my characters IE: żźćąśłę (It worked fine in this post)

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but some of the people working in the office require to write in different languages, and as it was my decision to move to Linux and unfortuntly keep Office as our suite of choice (more to do with the clients we service)
I have to get it working... :(

Thank you for your time, I really hope someone out there has found an answer to this or if together we can find it, I'm sure this will greatly help more people that have avoided getting rid of windows...

Best Regards,

Jeremy S

Have you tried CrossOver? They have a 14 days trial version

I was just going to suggest that, as well.

I'll try it out, but I don't think I'll have a budget for 10 copies of cross over

If you call or email them, maybe they will cut you a deal on multiple copies? You gotta remember; companies that work with open-source software are VERY nice (most of the time) and very willing to work with someone, especially if you are in an office.

Contact Crossover and see if they will work with you on multiple copies. There is a good chance that they will be more than happy to work with a business person.
