Windows 7: Office 2007: no spanish spell check

Office 2007: no spanish spell check

Office 2007 on Windows 7

I'd like to have in Word the spellcheck for the spanish language.

I have written some spanish text there, I've changed the language of the document to spanish but apparently there's no spanish spell check. No red line underneath words and when I press F7 Word says it's happy despite all the nonsense words I have typed.

I've checked the Language Settings and Spanish appears among the active editing languages.

I'd appreciate any help,
thanx

Skylos I don't know if this will help mate it has a heap of different languages which may or may not carry over to Office Speckie - Spell Check Internet Explorer

When you download ans install it you will need t shut all net windows when prompted.

thanks for the reply, ICit2lol.

Too much trouble, altogether. I'll stick to OpenOffice for this one. Installing a language spellcheck is way simplier there.

Hi skylos

It's easy.

1-Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Word Options.
2-Click Proofing
3-In the Custom Dictionary list, click the dictionary language that you want to use, and then click OK.
That's all.
Good luck

IE 9 and Spell Check
Can anyone please explain to me why IE9 does not have a native spell-check capability? All other browsers seem to have it. Is there a technical reason that prevents IE from having this? Has MS ever explained why spell-check is not included as a feature of IE (especially in 9 Beta and RC)? Thanks
