WPS Office 2014, Version

about WPS Office · · 2 Helpful

As of this writing, WPS Office is now a freemium product, downloaded as a monthly trial with features that are disabled after 30 days. The version listed above is the last truly free release, which can still be found on many sites, but no longer available on the official WPS website. The older version allows you to export as a PDF and will print documents without a watermark. It has the newer (optional) ribbon interface, is lightening fast, and is the alternative most compatible with Microsoft documents.

thank you very much, since nothing evolved in file formats this version still working flawless and deleting auto updater after installation also important. currently they became adware so i switched back to this version

Windows 10 has inbuilt PDF printer


A very good alternative.

I tried openoffice and abi word on my netbook and I had difficulities with both programs. Libreoffice would have been a good alternative but it didn't want to for some reason and I didn;t have the time to figure out why.

I definately like Kingsoft Office suite. It is very similiar to MS Office and takes up less space, which is a bonus for my netbook hard drive.

A linux version of this program would be great. I like LibreOffice on my Ubuntu but I would like to install kingsoft office on it as well if I ever need to change.

Incompatible with mainland Europe.

Both Android and Windows versions forces own regional standards, making spreadsheet entirely unusable. Moreover Windows version acts like a malware - changing system regional standards without any notifications at every launch. Making problems for local apps.

No localization as well. Android International version has been abandoned on version 4.9 and no longer updating.

True. And the problem with the custom dictionaries remains so far. You can't add custom word in native language (unallowed characters error) and you can't add custom dictionaries for spell checking.


Linux version

Kingsoft office is also another alternative for all of you who may want more options, it provides to be a very good alternative its i very similar to ms office as they advertise it to be. i checked it out and it actually is and i love there feature of tabs i always found it annoying that ms had new windows everytime you opened a new page or document people should definitely check it out.

Smaller, faster, better than Libre/OpenOffice.

Free edition seems like its fully functional to me... I don't use VBA and stuff.
