Language: MS Word 2013

Posted on 2014-08-10

I have a client based in New Zealand using Office 2013 who cannot change his dictionary to English(New Zealand).

I have done the following:
1. Word Options - Language - English (New Zealand) Default and only language set.
2. Word Options - Language - Display and help language = English<default> (I have changed this back and forth between English and Match MS Windows
3. Control Panel - Region = New Zealand
4. Control Panel - Language = English (New Zealand)

When I open a Word document I still get errors with language e.g. organisation is highlighted with an error and when I change it to the US way of spelling the error disappears.

Can someone please assist in getting this corrected.

Thank you

    Accepted Solution

    To change the language of a document to check the spelling, do the following:

    Place your cursor in the file where you want to start typing text in a different language or, if you have already typed the text, select the text.
    On the Review tab, in the Language group, click Set Proofing Language.
    In the Language dialog box, select the language that you want.
    Start typing.
