Check spelling and grammar in another language

Detect language automatically check box

You may sometimes need to clear the Detect language automatically option.

Sometimes selecting the Detect language automatically option can cause problems when you run the spelling checker. The most common ones are:

  • The wrong language is being selected.
  • Misspelled words are not being identified.

The most common cause of these problems is that the words that are in another language are words that are spelled the same way in a number of different languages, such as "centre" in English (United Kingdom) and French (France).

To solve these problems:

  • Type more text that is in the language that you want, or
  • Clear the Detect language automatically option and then manually set the language of the text that is in another language.
