Office 2007 Proofing in French Instead of English

Posted on 2008-11-17

When proofing documents in Word 2007, suggestions are made in French, rather than U.S.English.  When I review the Word options the only language that is selected is English.  When I look in the proofing section, under the When correcting spelling and grammar in Word section the writing style listed in the drop-down box is Grammaire and when I click on the settings button, all of the choices are in French.  If I create a new document, the settings are all in English as they should be.  This seems to only be happening on documents that existed pre-Office 2007 install.  How do I resolve this issue for those documents?
