Foreign Dictionary in Word

  troydi 12:40 07 Mar 2003

Does anybody know how to get hold of a foreign dictionary add in for word? I do a lot of work in German, and it would be very useful to have a German dictionary in there, but all it has is French and English.

Have you tried asking Microsoft?

Yes, that was my first idea, but I am still waiting for a reply - may have one in a few weeks! lol

Second try then and I'm not sure of this as I'm not at home with my installation CDs.

Don't all the dictionaries come with office so you just need to select the German one at installation so it is available?

I assume you have tried already to just change the language to German and see if there is a dictionary available?

That's a point, I'm not sure about the installation thing, I will give it a go anyway! Thanks Cherria. That's an idea I hadn't thought of! I can change the language to German at the moment, but sadly no dictionary.

Open word click on help, enter spell checker in french. Click on Check the spelling and grammar of text in another language. It will tell you how to install the spelling and grammar tools for the language you want.

Now does anybody know what "spell checker" is in French? ;-)
