I would like to turn off spell checking in Atom in one file. I cannot find any shortcut or option for that.
When I open a file with some non-programming stuff I get a red flood from the spell checker.

Spell Check: Toggle.
Add those lines at the bottom of the
'atom-text-editor': 'cmd-alt-s': 'spell-check:toggle'
There is a default list of scopes which triggers spell checking. You have to define your own list if you want to modify it.
The default list of scopes includes:
If you don't know which scope applies to your currently opened file:
Editor: Log Cursor Scope.
The first item on the list is the scope which applies to your file.
You can read more on the GitHub page of this package: https://github.com/atom/spell-check#spell-check-package.
There is a feature request (Add feature: toggle on/off) for this:
I added the feature 'Toggle' to the 'Packages -> Spell Check' menu.

I tried to open a very large non-English file, and the spell checker caused Atom to completely freeze. Worse, even after I kill Atom and try to relaunch it, it tries to open the same file immediately.
Eventually I had to run
apm disable spell-check in the command line. This is the solution when you can't even launch Atom.
