International availability of Microsoft Office Accounting 2008

Today we launched Office Accounting 2008 for the US and UK markets. We are also releasing a US Spanish version. Similar to Office Accounting 2007, Office Accounting 2008 includes the free Express versions of the product.

As I blogged about previously, unlike most other products it isn't a matter of just localizing the text and releasing it in another country, the product has to be customized to a particular country's tax laws and accounting practices so it takes time to release a version for another country. Users outside of the US or UK may of course download the free Express version or a trial Professional version for a test drive.

Here are the press releases:

And here are the links to the product:
