How to Change the Proofing Language in Office 2010 from AmEng (U.S.) to BrEng (U.K.)
Posted by Glenn Lowry on 13 September 2016 02:29 PM
Create a New Word document, or open an existing document with AmEng/BrEng text.
Select the text for which you’d like to change the proofing language. If you want to change the entire document, press CTRL – A to select all.
From the Review ribbon, Click Language > Set Proofing Language…
Choose English (U.K.) or English (U.S.) and Click OK. Obviously, you can choose any other language here as well, including English (Canada) and other versions of English.
Repeat this for each section of your Word document that uses a different language. If you want to change all documents to the selected language, Click Set as Default.
That should do the trick.
