Archived from groups: microsoft>public>word>spelling>grammar (more info?)

When Spell checking, sometimes the default dictionary changes to the French
language and then after a while reverts back to English. Am not clear on why
this happens.

Can someone please let me know why this happens and what i can do to avoid
it. I have a terminal server environment and all use citrix to access office
2000.

Thanks

Yes. common problem

your existing text was set to a default language, mostly english (US).
That is why it constantly jumps back.
You see it happening down in the status bar.
move the cursor over the status bar and you'll see it.
I think it is a document-relative setting, not a Word-relative.
So each new doc you start, be sure to first set the language.

Here is the solution for existing texts:

Simply select all text, then set the language to what you need.
the status bar should show your language now, constantly.
Now do the spell-checking
