Multilingual spellchecker offers too much help

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member elycett works for an international organization in Canada and corresponds via email in several languages.

The Outlook 2013 mail program he recently began using produces spellchecking in every language it encounters in messages, which is not what elycett wants. How does he make the spellchecker stick to just one language? Loungers in the Microsoft Outlook forum assist.
