  • Best Answer:

    Microsoft Office 2004 will work with Mac OS X Snow Leopard through Rosetta, which allows older PowerPC-only apps to work on Macs with Intel processors.

    Rosetta is not installed by default with Snow Leopard, but you will be given the option to install it the first time you attempt to run a PowerPC-only app. Keep in mind that the application may run slower due to the older code that must be translated on-the-fly.
