Kingsoft Corporation Released Three Editions of Kingsoft Office 2012

February 27, 2012

HONG KONG, Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Business office software always focuses on the three big software applications: word processing, spreadsheets and presentations. Now Kingsoft Corporation is pleased to present three versions of its office suite, Kingsoft Office Free 2012, Kingsoft Office Professional 2012 and Kingsoft Office Standard 2012. These office suites consist of three modules including Writer, Spreadsheets and Presentation. They are fully compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and can be seen as the best Microsoft Office alternative. Users can open and edit any existing Microsoft document or save a new one in Microsoft formats freely. Thus users can transfer their files between Kingsoft Office and Microsoft Office, which means they are able to get two sets of office software simultaneously.

Born of two decades of award-winning global experience, Kingsoft Office 2012 is a highly developed, user-friendly office suite overflowing with useful features. It includes a spell checker to automatically proofread documents; a built-in PDF converter to convert documents including all Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats into PDF format; the ability to encrypt documents to maximize security, and the option to share files using email. It supports a distinctive function: a tabbed view for documents, something Microsoft Office still lacks. With a multiple tabs interface that prevents users having to waste time switching between different windows, it allows users to open several tasks in a single interface, just like different websites get tabs in the browser, which is more convenient than Microsoft Office.

Which version is most suitable for you? Kingsoft offers Free, Standard or Professional versions. This article will specifically introduce the difference between the three.

Aside from the common features mentioned, the significant distinction is the VBA macro function. Professional edition offers macros but Free and Standard editions cannot support it. In addition, Professional and Standard editions offer two interfaces, traditional interface and 2012 interface, but Free edition only supports traditional interface. The new interface is similar to that of Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010, in that it provides more space and supports more functions, though users can retain the traditional interface if preferable. It allows users to switch freely between the traditional and new 2012 interface. Furthermore, Pro and Standard editions add a paragraph adjustment function. It allows users to speedily alter a complicated document layout, and the process of adjusting is more intuitive- with a click of a mouse drag, users can easily see the adjustment effect. It includes paragraph spacing, line spacing and indentation distance adjustment functions. To learn more details, please visit the Office Suite Editions Comparison page; it shows comparisons of these three editions by table.

On top of all this, Professional and Standard editions are priced at $69.95 and $49.95, respectively. In comparison, Microsoft Office Professional and Home and Business 2010 is priced at $349.99 and $199.99, respectively. Therefore it is a significantly cheaper and more compact alternative to Microsoft Office. The Free edition is a permanent freeware which still meets the general office requirements such as editing and handling word documents, analyzing data, creating slides and more.

We also offer Kingsoft Office for Android, which is an efficient mobile office solution made exclusively for cell phones and tablet devices running the Android OS.
