I already checked this answer: "Support of" vs. "Support for" but since the context is not the same, I am not sure of the right answer.

Here is the context: say that you are talking about a specific software which integrates a specific standard or norm. How should I express it ?:

  • "The current version of the software comes with a support for the XYZ norm/standard"
  • "The current version of the software comes with a support of the XYZ norm/standard"
  • "The current version of the software comes with a support to the XYZ norm/standard"

Thanks,

  • No, HanniBaL90. None of those is acceptable, for the simple reason that you misused "… a support" where "… support" alone was not simply preferable but necessary. That said, “support for”… and never “a support for”… would be correct and “support of” and “support to” don’t work. – Robbie Goodwin Mar 9 '18 at 2:11
  • So the right answer is support for ? Can you explain why I should not put an a before ? – HanniBaL90 Mar 9 '18 at 9:07
  • Can you explain why you didn't research that, please? – Robbie Goodwin Mar 14 '18 at 23:12

"support for" and "support of" are both in use, however I'd recommend:

The current version of the software supports XYZ norm/standard
