Add words to your spelling checker dictionary

When you use the spelling checker, it compares the words in your document with those in the tool's main dictionary. The main dictionary contains most common words, but it might not include proper names, technical terms, or acronyms. In addition, some words might be capitalized differently in the main dictionary than in your document. Adding such words or capitalization to a custom dictionary prevents the spelling checker from flagging them as mistakes.

 Important   Any custom dictionary setting you change in one Microsoft Office program affects all the other programs.

What do you want to do?

Change the language associated with a custom dictionary

By default, when you create a new custom dictionary, the program sets the dictionary to All Languages, meaning that the dictionary is used when you check the spelling of text in any language. However, you can associate a custom dictionary with a particular language so that the program uses the dictionary only when you check the spelling of text in a particular language.

  1. Open the Custom Dictionaries dialog box.

How?

  1. In the Dictionary list box, click the dictionary you want to change.
  2. On the Dictionary language menu, click the language for which dictionary should be used.

Change the default custom dictionary to which the spelling checker adds words

Whenever you check the spelling of a file, you have an option to add a word flagged as a misspelling to a custom dictionary. The default custom dictionary is the dictionary to which the program adds the word when you do this.

Do the following to specify the default custom dictionary that Microsoft Office programs use for all languages or for each language that you work in:

  1. Open the Custom Dictionaries dialog box.

How?

  1. In the Dictionary list box, do one of the following:
    • To change the default dictionary for all languages, click the dictionary name under All languages.
    • To change the default dictionary for a particular language, click the dictionary name under the language heading.
  2. Click Change Default.

 Note   If there is only one dictionary under a heading, then it is must be the default dictionary. In this case, the button is not available.

The next time you check spelling, the program uses the default custom dictionaries you selected. For more information, see Check spelling and grammar.
