Excel function name translations

This site has reference charts of Microsoft Excel 2007 functions in different languages. In these lists original English function names and also their descriptions are translated to 14 languages.

Many of the functions may have equal names in older or newer Excel versions (97/2000/2002/2003/2010/2013/2016) and in other spreadsheet applications like LibreOffice/OpenOffice.org Calc or Google Spreadsheets.

Please note that the first release of Excel 2010 made many changes to the function name translations. However, Microsoft decided to change them again in Excel 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1). You can find the affected functions in this support article.

I hope to do a full Excel 2013/2016 version of this site some time in the future.
