Services are little helpful extensions to OSX functions. They do all sorts of useful things like open selections in alternative software, change Simplified Chinese to Traditional Chinese and vice versa, change case, sort text and many more useful functions.
They are available throughout OSX, when applicable, from:
Menu > (Application) eg Pages > File > Services
In OSX 10.6, and up, also from under the Contextual Menu when you right click on something.
1. Download WordServices
2. Double click on the .zip file to unarchive it
3. Double click on WordService.service inside the folder to install it. If you have an older system you will have to drag it into the (yourusername)/Library/Services folder. If you do not have a Services folder, create one labeled Services.
4. Restart your Mac
5. In OSX10.6 and up you need to open Menu > (Application) > Services > Services Preferences… and check the services you want to be available.
In older systems it will be simply available in Menu > (Application) > Services.
