Convert Word documents from US to UK English

I have several MS Word (2002 and 2003) documents which have been e-mailed to me and were created in English (US).

Although the settings on my PC are for English (UK) all of these documents still show as English (US) when I do a spell-check.

Is it possible to convert all of these documents to English (UK) and, if so, how?

Tools, Language, Set language?

You need to set language in Word to English UK as the default

Open Word-Tools- Language-Set Language-English UK-Default-OK

God, I'm slow today.

In fact, you're both partly correct.

Having experimented a bit you need to open the document and then highlight all of it.

Then go to Tools; Languge; Set Language, English (UK).

Thanks for your help.
