The Spelling & Grammar icon appears when proofing tools are installed for this language.
When you check the spelling and grammar of text in a language, you are using the proofing tools for that language. The language's proofing tools must be installed on your computer before you can check the spelling or grammar of text in that language. When you set the language of text in a document, if the Spelling & Grammar icon appears to the left of the language in the Language dialog box, then that language's proofing tools are installed.
If the proofing tools for the language that you want are not installed, you may need to get a language pack or language interface pack. For more information, see the Quick Reference Card at the end of the course.
