I use Word on my Mac Pro.

But the set-up keeps trying to correct my language based on English/American word-book even when I write Danish. Such a waste of time.

How can I get rid of this misunderstood "help" the system.

Thanks in advance
Hi there and welcome

To clarify, you want Word to use the Danish dictionary? If so, which version of Word is this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Microsoft Word to Mac 2011


version 14.2.3 (120616)


Can you do the following please in Word

On the Tools menu, click Language.
In the Mark selected text as box, select the Danish Language, click Default, and then click Yes.

Than restart Word and it will default to Danish for Spell checking ect.

If you have any difficulties, please let me know

Thank you
