I'm relatively new to UpWork. I have a Mac which has three programs with which I can compose and create documents: Pages, TextEdit and pdf. Is there a standard program(s) that both clients and freelancers use to exchange and work on documents on UpWork?

Offhand, I would imagine it would be helpful to have Word; That said, I'm on a Mac and I use OpenOffice, a free word processing program that will open Word documents:


You might want to post this question in the writer's forum - they'd have a better handle on this than I do.

Hi Virginia,


OK, great. I will check out that OpenOffice link. Thank you very much for your kindness and help!

I still have Word 2007 from the glory days of Microsoft Technet registration I even forget the name for it but it was awesome cuz you could download anything for $1200/year SWEET. I had so many cool things like SQL Enterprise that costs an arm and a leg for licensing.


I'ma upgrade to the latest probably this year though.

I stopped using Word. My Mac came with Pages. But I mostly use Google Docs for clients.
