Will my Office for windows license work for office on mac? I don't think it will, but I was just checking.

    I don't believe there is a cross-transferable option. You are much better off asking this question on Microsoft Office's forums. BOL.

No, your Windows license for Office will not work with the Mac version of Office. According to this post on a Microsoft support forum:

Mac Office (2011) is licensed as a completely separate product & is produced specifically for the Mac OS. If you choose to use it you will have to purchase it outright - there is no 'transfer' of a license from one OS to another.
