Spell Checking in French, Spanish, German and Italian
Spell Check at the Foreign Language Media Center is available in Microsoft Word 97 and Microsoft Word 2000, located in the French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Windows Applications folders.
To check foreign language spelling in a document, enter Microsoft Word 97 or 200 and open the document.  Then:

Step 1:  Under Tools go to Language, and then choose Set Language.

Step 2:  Choose the Language you want to Spell Check in.  Click the Default button. A window will pop up asking if you want to change the default language -- it will advise you that this change will affect all new documents based on the Normal template. Click Yes. Then click OK.

Step 3:  Under Tools choose Spelling and Grammar (also F7 key). Proceed to check spelling and grammar in the language you have selected.
