Spelling and Grammar changes to Italian automatically

Hi All,

A few of our users here are having problems with MS Word 2003 where when they run the Spelling and Grammar check the language changes to Italian, they change it back to English and it changes back, sometimes exiting Word and reopening fixes this but only for a little while. I have tried renaming the normal.dot, rebooting the machine and reinstalling Office 2003.

Any ideas???

Thank you,
pab

Check under the Regional and Language options on the Control Panel to make sure that the language is set to English there.

Sorry 'bout that. The first dozen or so characters were repeated.

However, this is the text:

Generally the document text itself has a language property. You can select all or part of the text and change its language via Tools/Language/Set Language...

After doing that, you should see that selecting any part of the document will cause the relevent language to be displayed in the status bar. The spell checker should automatically pick the correct language for that document (or part)

Setting the default language determines the language of new documents created with your Normal.dot
