LibreOffice on stage at the Libre Software World Conference in Zaragoza

The Internet, November 9, 2011 - The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 3.4.4, an
improved version of the award-winning free office suite for Windows, Mac and Linux. LibreOffice has
recently won InfoWorld's BOSSIE Award 2011 as Best of Open Source Software, and the Open World
Forum Experiment Award of Most-Popular Software.

SUSE's Andras Timar, who manages the LibreOffice localization effort, says,  "Thanks to the
contribution of Michael Bauer, a volunteer who took the long-time-abandoned Scottish Gaelic
translation and produced a complete UI localization in just a few months, LibreOffice 3.4.4 adds
yet another native-language version, bringing the total to 105. This shows the unparalleled value
of copyleft licenses for end user software, as LibreOffice is now the most-important office suite
when it comes to protecting cultural heritage worldwide, especially when the number of native
speakers is not sufficiently attractive for large corporations to devote localization resources
to."

Today, TDF and LibreOffice will also be on stage at the Libre Software World Conference (LSWC) in
Zaragoza, where Jesus Corrius - a deputy member of the TDF Board of Directors - will keynote about
"TDF: the home of LibreOffice". LSWC is the most-prominent free software event in Spain, and the
presence of a member of the TDF Board of Directors is a testimonial of the efforts that the project
is devoting to developing a large and diverse Spanish-speaking community, in which each local
community in Europe and the Americas can grow and thrive within a single global project.

LibreOffice 3.4.4 is available for immediate download from the following link:
