    You might look in a local software store if there are third-party products available. Microsoft offers the Proofing Tools for Office XP.

    Adam,

    As you are located in Switzerland you may already have a German dictionary. The French, German and Italian localized versions of Office all include German proofing tools. If they were not installed when Office was installed, you can add them. Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove programs and select MS Office and click on 'Change'. Select the Add or Remove Features button and then 'Next'. Under 'Office shared features', expand 'Proofing Tools'. That will list the languages available. If German is there, select it and select 'Run from my computer' and click 'Update'. You will need your installation CD or Network Location to proceed.
