Dictionary for Excel Formulas

Microsoft Excel supports many languages. In total, you can use Excel in 107 different languages. Many of these languages also use local formula names. For example, VLOOKUP is called SVERWEIS in German, BUSCARV in Spanish or DÜŞEYARA in Turkish. Fortunately, you don’t need to remember different formula names because Excel automatically translates the formulas to your language. However, in some cases you need to know the local formula term. Please refer to our comprehensive dictionary below.
