I have just installed Office 2007. I used the translation app to translate from Eng.ish into French. To my utteer astonishment on next using Out Look Express spell checker it came up checking my English words in French.

I tried putting it back to English, but when I opened up the options it would only give a choice of either French or French.!!!

How do I get back to having my emails spell checked in English?

As I have German as well as French friendsm how do I stop this weird linkage between translating in Word 2007 changing my Outlook express spell check in future?

Hi,

Thanks for using Just Answe..

Please follow the steps to solve this..

you would need to do is download a spellcheck software and install it. By installing this software it will change all the default dictionary languages to english, at which point it will allow you to start using spellcheck in english.

  • Click here to download the software.
  • Once you have downloaded the software, double-click on the file and continue with the setup.
  • Once that is complete, restart your computer.
  • Now test it out and you should have your spellcheck back up and running.



  • Also another solution is ..

    1. Run Setup from another Office installation disk.
    2. Select "Custom Install".
    3. Turn Off ALL of the product installations. (Right-Click icon and select "Not Available")
    4. Under "Office Shared Features", set "Proofing Tools" to "Run all from My Computer" This should install the English, French, and Spanish dictionaries. English alone would probably solve the problem.

    Thank you for answering the first part of my questionm: I am now back into English.

     

    Now for the second part.

     

    As I wish to use Word 2007 translation facility for French and German does this mean that when I do I will have my English email spell check changed into one of these two languages as before and if so does this mean I have to run the prgramme your provided again wheneveer I do this?

    Word translation facility and spell check uses diffent process...

    It wont interfere...Try and let me know..

    Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
