You have to select the text and then tag it with the language of your choice.

You can use tags in multi-language documents:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.notes85.help.doc/doc_spell_check_multilang_t.html
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.notes.help.doc/DOC/H_SPELL_CHECKING_LANGUAGE_TAGGED_TEXT_IN_DOCUMENTS_OVER.html

Or, to avoid tagging, you can use supplemental dictionary:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.notes.help.doc/DOC/H_USE_THE_MEDICAL_SUPPLEMENTAL_DICTIONARY_WHEN_SPELL_CHECKING_OVER.html

Notes knows to look for words in both dictionaries when you choose the supplemental dictionary for your default.
But first you must install the language dictionaries from the IBM® Lotus® Notes® CD, before you can switch language dictionaries. The language dictionaries are recognized by the file extension DIC, and they are located in your Notes/Data directory.

How to install additional dictionaries:
