Proofing tools for Office (2016) for Mac
With reference to http://answers.microsoft.com/thread/d9196232-2aff-40a2-a4ea-ca6241932395:
Apparently, proofing tools for Office for Mac are not available. I am Office 365 business customer and it comes a complete surprise that I can't proof my documents in Slovenian language on Mac -- but I am able to do so in Office Onlne and in Windows.
Additionally, there are language packs available for windows versions but not for mac versions. Why?!
Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion.

Please add support for Egyptian Arabic Proofing Language and Read aloud on MacBook Air as is on my iPhone. I should not have to transfer Word documents written on my MacBook to my iPhone to get it to read aloud in Egyptian or other Arabic Languages.
I suggest to add support for macOS system level spelling.
This is really annoying. Yes, at the beginning, when I started using Office 365 it was possible to check Slovenian text, now this functionality seems to be gone.

Need to add all the options word 2016 has to offer for PC for MAC. Example: Building blocks, creating customized color themes, and the options button under file tab. I bought office 365 for MAC and the tools I need aren't even available. Customer Service couldn't even tell me that. They lied and said it had everything just like word 2016 for PC. I had to go digging around the internet to find out this was the case. Disappointing!
I agree! I need one for Vietnamese!
How can I obtain systematic proofreading for Microsoft Word 10 using a Mac Desktop?
Simply terrible. No solution yet. I am switching to Pages.
I found the proof for errors in Word 2016 for Mac!!
Microsoft should make additional language packs, or at least spelling dictionaries, accessible on Word for Mac. Slovenian is falsely included in the drop-down menu of languages, but not supported. This is tremendously irritating. Does Microsoft rely on users to use LibreOffice for proofing??
I am a college student trying to proof for errors such as using passive voice in papers, avoiding wordiness, and flagging sentence fragments. I cannot find that option in Word 2016 for Mac. I am very disappointed.

I really don't understand why proofing tools for some languages that are available in Windows aren't available on OSX. Seems very rule of the thumb ... there's no technical reason for not including all languages available.

Agreed, this is a needed feature.
Spanish spelling & grammar for Mac only includes spelling but not grammar. However, Word for Windows has had grammar in Spanish since many years ago.
