do: International Rescue

In an environment as internationally diverse as the University our Office documents have to cope with wide variation in languages, character sets and convents.  Names in many cultures aren’t “first-name surname” pairs, characters can be shredded as documents open, dates can be backwards or on different calendars and just how do you get that curly bit under a “C”?

This do: talk explores features and tips around Microsoft Office to help you navigate around the pitfalls.

Intended audience is anybody who works with the Office documents containing international elements.
