Spell check in multiple languages
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".
Multi-language spell check is on the backlog.
Just adding my voice to the crowd. Teams is good, but please fix spellcheck functionality ...

When will be the spelling and grammar check in multi-language available?

Please fix this issue, we use teams in English and Spanish and we need the spell checker on all languages.
Please fix this issue. It's been a feature in Outlook for years to identify the language I'm typing in (English, Swedish etc.) so why not in the Teams app?

It's very annoying to have the red underline, and no option to disable them. Is it really hard for the Microsoft development team to add this feature?
I use Teams in English and write a lot in both English and Danish. When writing in English everything is okay, but when writing in Danish it is EXTREMELY frustrating to have the red underline. The red underline makes it harder to spot any typos and errors. It would almost be better to have no spell check at all (and thus no red underline)

I'd like a priority on this topic too. I write in 4 different languages daily and multiple spellchecker would be very beneficial to me and my colleagues globally. Will this Vote be merged with this similar Vote ? https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18472327-proofing-tools-spell-check-theasaurus-autocorre (which has been on hold for 1 year because the developer left :-D)

Would be great to have it available soon. I am typing in different teams with different languages. And all the red lines from the spell checker beneath my typed words make me crazy. Multiple language spell check works in Outlook almost perfect. And TEAMS is THE collaboration tool. Thank you!

I would really like to be able to turn spell checking off. Letting the spell check language follow the keyboard language would be a disaster.
Spell-checker should match the keyboard language, and use the same spell-check languages as the other Office applications.
In fact the spell-checker should match the keyboard language!

Multi-lingual spell-check is a must.
not even in English has spell checks.
If at least in English we had a spell and grammar checks would be great.

I can not understand why the teams editor can not use the same spell check with multiple lqnguages as any other office application. Espacially in international teams you post very often in Englisch and your mother language in parallel, changing language setting for the whole teams environment for each post is not feasible.
Please add this feature soon!
I need German and English.....at the same time :) Es ist wichtig! Perhaps you can at least select two languages at the same time. Then MS will automatically switch as you type to check the language that you are currently using.

I have a Swedish Teams install but I type a lot in English. I only get spell check in Swedish and a lot of annoying red underlining when I type in English. It is strange though that a lot of English words do not have red underlining....?
I message people in both English and Spanish. in jabber, I was able to select what language spell check would detect per chat. In teams, there is only a language option in the settings.
And I just want to be able to completely disable that spell check ****. It is ridiculous that MS just shoves all these un-features into their products like that, not allowing the users to fully customize anything.
A good point. So yes please! Thank you, Jens, for this one. It's a pain in the... to see everything underlined if you're writing in the other language.

It would be great if Teams could recognize in which language I'm writing and so to do the spelling checking based on that. Nowadays if I have teams in English but I want to talk with a colleague in Spanish the app recognize every word as a mistake and it's really annoying.
