Office App Store expanding to eight new markets, adding support for more languages

The growing library of apps in the Office Store can add all kinds of cool new capabilities to Office 365, from displaying Twitter updates in Outlook to mapping the data in your spreadsheets. This spring, features like these will be available in more corners of the globe, when the Office Store adds support for five additional languages (Chinese, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese and Italian) and open 8 new storefronts (Russia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Brazil), the Office team announced Tuesday.

In related news, Office app developers will be able to use subscription pricing for their Office apps beginning in October, allowing them to offer free, trial, paid and subscription versions of apps to users.
