I am looking to purchase a batch of Office 2010 Pro, the seller has both the US and Irish, but the Irish version is almost 30% more, I am just wondering what are the difference between the two, ok, I get the point the US is designated for the US market and IRE is for the EU market, but is there any actual difference when come to using it in the UK ?
Thanks

In US version you will not have irish specific proofing tools, but you can download Office Language Interface Pack here (as I can see for Irish language it is free):

Ask seller to scan and send you US license agreement. In this case you will be sure is this version allowed for use in Ireland or not.

Part of this is supply/demand with US packages being so widely available - especially for online sales - in comparison to pretty much any other region.

How many licences are you buying? Is it worth looking at a volume licensed version?

als315 is correct, look out for full packaged US retail versions - (especially SKU: 269-14964) which are widely available US packages but are clearly marked "for distribution in the US only" and so available to resellers at a reasonable discount.  It is the responsibility of the end user to determine they are using the product within the terms of the licence agreement not the retailer.

Some features may not be legal for export of US vs. EU version.  Some encription features are not allowed to be sold out of the US, I believe.  Or, they didn't use to be.
