Office 97 Tips

Multilingual Spell-Check

If your documents include non-English text, your standard spelling checker won't be much help when you try to inspect those sections. Luckily, Word 97 allows you to designate selections of text to be checked by different dictionaries. For example, you may have included a quote from a French philosopher. To make sure that it will be spell-checked using a French dictionary, select the text and choose Tools/Language/Set Language. Pick the appropriate language from the list, and click OK. When you spell-check your entire document, you'll be running a smarter, more effective, multilingual check. (To take advantage of this feature, you do have to have the appropriate supplemental dictionaries installed. If you have problems, try reinstalling Word with all the dictionaries you plan to use selected.)
