That's the actual effective focal length, not 35mm equivalent.
The Micro 4/3 standard has a diagonal dimension on the sensor of about half that of 35mm or full frame. This makes it effectively a 2x crop sensor size. It uses a 4:3 aspect ratio like P&S's instead of the 3:2 aspect ratio like SLR's, so the edge dimensions will be slightly different, but not enough to worry about.
With the 2x crop factor, a 14-45 would equate to a 28-90 in 35mm equivalent.
