Microsoft Office Word 2007 logo trainingMicrosoft Word Templates

For further information on Word templates visit our companion site Office Templates.

Use a Word template to:

  • Produce professional looking documents quickly, easily and consistently
  • Follow corporate design and brand guidelines with the minimum of effort
  • Present the right image to your clients
  • Access the advanced functionality of Word with limited experience and training
  • Save the cost of printing and storing corporate stationery

Our Word templates typically include:

  • Styles for quick and consistent formatting
  • Content controls for inputting and managing document content
  • Menu, toolbar and keyboard customisation
  • Ribbon customisation for Word 2007, Word 2010, 2013 and 2016 in XML
  • Macro commands and dialogs written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)

Ability Software Consultants often work with graphic design and marketing agencies producing Word  templates to match corporate branding. Graphic designers typically work in an Apple Mac environment using applications such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop; we can translate these branded designs in to functioning Word templates.

Word for Mac 2011Word for Mac 2011 logo and 2016

Ability Software Consultants can also create Word templates for Word for Mac 2011 and 2016 using styles, themes, menu, toolbar and keyboard customisation and macro commands written in VBA.

Although Word for Windows 2010/2013/2016 templates will generally work in Word for Mac 2011/2016 there are some differences. For instance, Word for Mac does not support content controls or XML ribbon customisation. Word for Mac 2011 does support VBA.


We can provide help and assistance on Word template installation as well as user guides and user training.

All templates are signed with an authorised digital certificate to comply with Microsoft macro security requirements.
