How to set UK language in MS word 2007 for always as default language?
Go to Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Tools > Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings.
When you have done that, you will see a window as shown below:
Ensure that the enabled editing languages you need are in the Enabled Editing Languages box on the right hand side and that the default the Primary Editing Language is set in the box at the bottom of the window as shown above. This will be the default dictionary.
- Right click on a misspelled word in your document
- Language –> Set Language –> select preferred language (e.g. English (UK)) –> Default… –> YES –> OK.
Click on the language in the status bar.
The language selection dialog appears.
Select "English (United Kingdom)" and then click on the "Default..." button (bottom left on the form).
I think that should do it. If not select "English (United Kingdom)" then "OK" then repeat and select "Default..." the second time.
Don't Forget to check your Language and Regional Settings in the Control panel. Office looks here first to grab default settings. If the keyboard language not set right for keyboard it will revert back..even if you set everything correctly in word. The Rest of the control panels can be found under the office button in word going to word options and set your defaults from there. This is how I was able to correct for Canadian English to Default..Hope it works for you!!
