Top 5 Downloadable Microsoft Word Alternatives



Microsoft recently has been clamping down on illegal activation of their software Microsoft Office Suite which includes Microsoft Words, Excel, and PowerPoint. This new move affected people using Windows 10 the most.

However, don’t fret, below are some alternative software you may consider without ever missing the fun of Microsoft Word you have gotten used to.

1. The Apache OpenOffice

This software is free to download and use. The package comes with six programs to replace most Microsoft Suites programs.

The 6 applications included in the Apache OpenOffice suite are: Writer (word processor), Calc (spreadsheets), Impress (presentations), Draw (diagrams and illustrations) and Base (database manipulation) and Math (mathematical equations).

It is also designed to open PDF files, without the need for an add-on. Also, considering it is open-source software, you can expect it to constantly be upgraded with new features.

2. LibreOffice

This is another open-source alternative for Microsoft Office Suite. It is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. It is the best choice for people who are too addicted to Microsoft Word. The interface and functionality are almost alike.

Unlike Apache OpenOffice, this software is capable of opening and editing DOCX file format.

3. Jarte

The Jarte software is built on the Microsoft WordPad Engine and free. Although there is a paid version for this, you can still enjoy most of its juicy features without breaking the bank.

Some of the features you are likely to find include: ergonomic tabbed interface, small resource requirements, portability, support for touchscreens, and quick loading time

4. WPS Office

It is likely you have used the mobile version of this application on your mobile phone. If yes, you should find it difficult to navigate your way around its usage on your PC.

Another fun of this application is its availability in various languages aside from English including French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Russian.

Other alternatives to try out include:

5. Softmaker Free Office

6. Google Docs (Online; will require internet connection)
