From LibreOffice Help
Jump to navigation Jump to search

LibreOffice can check the spelling of words in more than one language, provided that you have installed dictionaries for the other languages.

  1. Choose LibreOffice - PreferencesTools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids, and ensure that the Check in all languages check box in the Options list is selected.
  2. Activate the AutoSpellcheck icon in the Standard bar.
Note.png If you do not enable the Check in all languages feature, words that do not occur in the default language of the document are underlined by a wavy red line. To assign the underlined word to another language, right-click the word, and then choose Word is or Paragraph is, where the suggested language and country is shown in the command.
