Change Microsoft Word Language To English Uk Mac
I'm sick and tired of Microsoft Word defaulting back to English(US) no matter how many times I change it to English(UK) both on the current document I'm working on and for the default template.
I'm running Microsoft Office 2008 on Mac - Snow Leopard.
I'd read that it was inseparably linked to the language settings of the OS but that is definitely set to English and the region specified to be UK.
Can anyone tell me how to change it and keep it changed?
It's organisation, not organization FFS :annoyed: (Incidentally, the built in spellcheck flagged organization as wrong here )
Typical that the one Microsoft product on my Mac is the only program to ever annoy me or crash
