I downloaded the language pack for Portuguese, but in word when I try to do the spell check it says the dictionary isn't installed. When it go to languages in options it shows that Portuguese is there with spell checking. How do I get word to access the dictionary to it can auto check at run the spell check on Portuguese?

Unfortunately you will need to buy the Portuguese dictionary for Word (I assume you have the English version of Word) See

Yup. If you scroll through the About box, you'll notice that Microsoft doesn't actually write most of the proofing tools. – surfasb Jan 28 '12 at 1:39
So in addition to the Portuguese language pack I bought from Microsoft that said it includes Portuguese proofing tools I need to buy a separate dictionary from another source? – Steve Jan 28 '12 at 5:59
