Spell check in muliple languge
It would be nice if it was possible to have the Teams desktop app in one languge and spell checking in multiple languge and at the same time customize date and time format.
E.g. I would like to have Teams in English, have spell checking in English and Danish, and have date and time format in "Danish".
I also would like to have Teams in English & have the spell checker in our regional language (AU) as do all the other Microsoft apps. We use Teams for a lot of our communications and the red underline of correctly spelled words (IE Australian not US spelling) is very distracting

Yes please :-)
Also please add Afrikaans, Xhosa, Zulu and more African languages
Thank you :-D
Yes please, it is ESSENTIAL and BASIC!
This simple point became critical on the decision to go for Microsoft Teams or not..
Absence of multi language spellcheck is considered by our top management as simply 'unacceptable lack of quality in today's world'.
When is it going to be enabled??

And please use the same set of languages as in Outlook, also Dutch

That is what I call an unfinished product...

Same as in IE. What is so complicated to support multilingual users. I have one chat in English, the next one in German. Even Firefox has on-the-fly spellchecker language switch. Only Microsoft with a "worldwide community" fails us completely since years...
This is already encompassed by the following suggestion, which incidentally has stalled due to an engineer leaving last year who appears not to have been replaced yet: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18472327-proofing-tools-spell-check-theasaurus-autocorre

Spell check should work the same way as in Outlook, Word etc. In the Wiki-part of Teams this is extremely needed...
Any progress on this?
if Chrome can do it ... MS Team can do it ;)
It seems Microsoft Teams was not created for people who use different languages on a daily basis.
I have my computer installed in German so my spell check is set to German. On a daily basis I mainly communicate in English and Swedish, occasionally German. Writing and having your whole sentences highlighted red is very annoying :) Hope they can apply multilingual spell check (or just add a setting to remove spell check to not have to see the red lines) asap. Preferably yesterday.

This feature exists in Skype for business. I expect the parity in Teams.
Why is this, and the other thing about a customizable dictionary, something that even needs to be voted on? Chrome and Firefox both have customizable dictionaries. MS Office already has a customizable dictionary.
Yesterday, I saw a demo of MS Hololens in Teams (btw, Teams *doesn't know how to spell "Hololens"!*).
So you plan to program advanced Mixed Reality functionality into Team, yet you have a broken spell check (broken in that it's missing key features).

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,!!!

Yes, no question about that!

This is an absolutely necessity for big organizations and multi-national Teams. As suggested, each channel should have a individually configurable language
Would be awesome to have, please add Norwegian as well :-)
Must feature for international teams!
