English French German Italian Portuguese Spanish Extensions for Business Users

Filed under
OOo is an excellent all-around productivity suite as it is, but you can add a few useful features using extensions to make it better suited for use in a business environment. Here are a handful of extensions worth considering if you are using as a business tool.


Right from the start, Google Docs has been a useful complement to Since this web-based office suite supports the OpenDocument format, you can send documents back and forth between and Google Docs. While this works fine when you have to upload or download documents every now and then, transferring dozens of documents between and Google Docs can quickly become a nuisance. The OpenOffice.org2GoogleDocs (ooo2gd) extension solves the problem by allowing you to easily upload documents to Google Docs as well as open existing Docs files in Writer. The upload feature supports not only ODT documents, but also SXW, DOC, and RTF. Moreover, ooo2gd can send spreadsheets in ODS, XLS, and CVS formats as well as PPT and PPS presentations. The download part of the ooo2gd extension is still in the experimental stage, and for now, you can only open Google Docs documents in Writer as plain text files.
