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.
We have users in the US, Belgium, Germany and China. Any multinational organisation is going to want to be able to spellcheck in multiple languages, depending upon the audience whether it be by Team, Channel or even Post.
How can this take this long? Backlog since before 11/2019 - now 1/2021.
When I have O365 on the machine with the correct spell check why can the "embedded" Word inside Teams *not* use that?
Although it's possible to "Set Proofing Language..." for a given file once inside the "embedded" Word instance but there seems to be no way to have that selection as default. It always reverts back to English.
weirdly enough, this suggestion does not show in the 'Languages/Translation' sections.
as much as I like uservoice, it's rather difficult to find similar ideas and support them, so everyone just submits a new idea and you end up with an insignificant amount of votes for each...

Spell Check for English (New Zealand) please
Spell check for Spanish and Catalan please! We use Office and would like to switch from Slack to Teams but this is mandatory!
With students across the world learning languages, having a 2nd language installed is critical, but at the price of having Teams spell check not working, not a great trade off.
Also need to make sure like all other Office suite applications that you have the ability to "Add to dictionary", should be a 101 feature on Office applications.

Spell check and language detection for Norwegian and English.
I usually write the same language to the same person in a specific chat.
A feature would be to set the autocorrect language per chat thread.
Spell check for Greek Language please.
Jep, would be very nice...
I would say its urgent - transnational teams all the way !

Sweden still waiting for spellcheck with English operative settings
This is needed! Transnational teams are the norm now.
I would appreciate Czech spell checker

When multi language spell check will be available?
Is multi-language spell check stil on the backlog?
The easiest might be to have a language selection drop down right next to the input textbox. This would allow to toggle language easily for each message.

Adding a ping in the hope to help giving this suitable priority; multi language support (similar like in outlook) is really needed.
I hope all european languages are included
Michael Burton commented
Please boost the priority for multi-language support. When a colleague writes in any language that is not the default, the Teams spell checker marks up in red all across the text, which is incorrect.
