Go to Help and Type "Change Default Language"

This is part of it but I doubt that the links contained in it will work.

Every version of the 2007 Office release includes proofing tools, such as dictionaries and grammar rules, for more than one language. To see which languages of the proofing tools are included with your version of the 2007 Office release, see The 2007 Microsoft Office suites localized versions. If your version of the 2007 Office release does not include the proofing tools for the languages you want to use, see Determine if you need a Language Pack.

Your US and Spanish versions should have the language packs for English UK and the corresponding dictionaries.

Click on Start->Programs->Microsoft Office->Microsoft Office Tools

From the menu, select 'Microsoft Office 2007 Language Setting'

Click the 'Editing Languages' tab and you should see two panels. The right hand one will list all of the enabled editing languages.

If only 'English (US)' is showing, you will need to select 'English (UK)' from the available langues panel on the left and then click 'Add'.

Having done this, you should be able to set the 'primary editing language' option box to say 'English (UK)'.
