Is there a table of Excel function-names for different languages?

Hi!
I work in a school with foreign students, some of whom have laptops with
Excel in their native foreign-language versions. Our teaching materials use
English, and it really slows up some of our students when the translations of
Excel commands are not obvious.

Surely somewhere there is a tabulation of Excel function names in different
languages?

I've found a French table by Christian Herbe with 9 Western European
languages,

http://cherbe.free.fr/traduc_fonctions_xl97.html

but nothing anywhere on the web or on Microsoft sites for Eastern European
languages, Russian, Chinese, Japanese etc.

It would be a really big help if someone could point me to some of the
above, please.

Thanks - Julia

Of the languages the OP mentions only Russian is included Keepitcool's
translator. How would you tell a Chinese student what SUMPRODUCT is in
Chinese unless you speak Chinese and you have computer with Chinese
Windows/Mac. It's probably easier to find out Asian languages for Excel in
Asian Excel newsgroups.

Many thanks for replies to date, especially the Russian and the Toolpak
translator.

The Chinese (actually more often Japanese at present, but Chinese are on the
increase) is needed by students here doing workshops written in English, but
working on their own machines. We can describe what sumproduct does (their
command of English is reasonable), but they may not know where to start
scrolling to look for an equivalent.

Thanks for the suggestion re "Asian Excel"

Please keep replies coming

Maybe the function workbook will help on this page

If you open it in a Chinese version and click the help button with the
activecell in the row of the English function the Chinese Help will popup with the name.
