    How to switch spell checking temporary?

    I've to write emails in German or English and my mother language is
    German. Can I switch the spell checking TEMPORARY from German to English
    for writing in English?

    Any suggestions?

    Martin

    I do it by changing the input language (left Shift + left Alt) and having
    "Check spelling in current input language" selected on the Options >
    Spelling page. Unless you know the English keyboard layout, stick to your
    German keyboard.

    Larry, thanks a lot. That was a very useful piece of advice :-)
    Now I can switch the spelling check with a click on the language in the
    system tray.

    I have also added German per your instructions, but when I type something in
    German and then use Spellcheck under Tools, it does not find German.

    Am I missing something?

    Martin, I did not succeed. I also followed (I think) instructions given
    earlier quite carefully, did select German, but when I type for example "was
    soll denn dies alles?" and go to Tools, I can go to spelling but it does not
    check the German.

    What am I missing?

    I also see nothing in the system tray at the bottom re languages.

    Hallo Ritter 197,
    you have to go via "Systemsteuerung / Regions- und Sprachoptionen /
    Sprachen / Details".
    Under "Installierte Dienste" you must click on "Hinzufügen". In the
    following form you can add a "Eingabegebietsschema" (=Language) and a
    Tastaturlayout.
    If you do so, you have the "Language Icon" in the system tray.

    It sounds as if you have an English language version of WLMail. On the
    Options > Spelling page, is German (Germany) listed under Languages and is
    it Installed? If it's listed and shown as Available, you'll have to click
    the Install button.
    Then select "Check my spelling as I type" (useful for testing) and "Check
    spelling in current input language". On the Language bar (probably next to
    the system tray), make sure that DE is showing. Now try again to compose
    something in German. If you make a deliberate error, what you just typed
    should show with a wavy red line under it.
    Let us know whether or not you get it working.
