    Hi Juergen, 

    Thanks for reaching out to us. 

    In order for the styles from Confluence (e.g. Headings, list styles etc) to be mapped with the correct styling into your exported Word file, you would need to ensure that you appropriately created and named the styles as outlined in our documentation. 

    Had you experienced any issues when exporting with your non-english version of MS Office? 

    Within the Defining styles section ( of our documentation, you can find the specific information regarding the process of defining your styles in your Microsoft Word Template. You can also find the full list of styles which will allow Scroll Office to properly handle the matching of the styles in Confluence here

    The styles which don't have a Scroll style, for example, the Paragraph style, should automatically include the content when exporting and should not require translation. If you are experiencing issues with your template and/or the exported content, please reach out to us at

    Cheers, Thomas (K15t Software)

    Hi Thomas,

    thanks for your information. The question arose because I noticed that the styles seem to get translated "magically" into the corresponding german style definitions:

    paragraph --> standard

    heading 1 --> Ueberschrift 1


    But from your posting I understand that I have to define all styles explicitely, hence I will do just so.
