With Office 2011 for Mac, you can check spelling and grammar in languages other than English.
Word 2011 for Mac comes with foreign-language dictionaries such as Czech, French, Russian, and you can also change the ‘brand’ of English (UK, US, Australian).
The default dictionary determines which language’s proofing tools Word uses for spelling and grammar.
You can change Word’s default language dictionary:
- Choose Tools→Language.
- The Language dialog opens, and you see a list of languages. Select the new language to use and click the Default button.
- A pop-up will appear to change the default language.
- Click Yes to change Word’s default spelling and grammar checking language to the language you selected. Click OK to close the Language dialog.
Update: This didn’t stick for some documents that I created and amended with this. Until the latest update, and now they seem to be sticking to the language I selected.
