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.

I am quite surprised and disappointed that this is not part of a major communication product. I mean do you expect the whole world to speak only English? That's a major flaw in the design. Sorry for being harsh but it's an absurd that a company like Microsoft that has done internationalisation for ever has an oversight on supporting multiple languages on the spell check for teams. You should set this issue to a higher priority because of the visibility of this embarrassing issue.

I would appreciate to have spell check in my language (czech) and English at the same time. WIthout need to switch keyboard and or otherwise switch languages.
I would like to see that as well :-)
+1 for multi-language auto detect like Outlook or Word.

Another call for multi-language spell check from me as well! Our company has rolled out Teams to foster global exchange between our offices but it is annoying that the "red snakes" make 50% of my posts almost illegible when composing them
I just thought I was missing something when I could only spellcheck in English and not in French. Would be great if Teams would recognize the language being typed... or perhaps a change of keyboard setting... Outlook works it out...
I am using 4 languages in parallel. I would like to be able to define the language for each individual chat.

Even this comment field I can do a RMB click and change the language. Working with teams that speak multiple languages it would make things much easier.
My organisation may have to drop this application because it does not yet support multi-language spell check! What are you waiting for?

This is paramount considering the amount of information we are putting into Teams these days.

It would be good if it could spellcheck in English correctly. It thinks I've, you've, should've etc. are misspellings. It's also crazy that you can't add words, like your own company and product names.

Please put this as TOP priority on backlog!
Any other implementation than the one suggested above should lead to public shaming!
1. English UI to get rid of crappy translations
2. Multilanguage spell checking
3. Local/customized date time to get rid of those horrible, non-conforming, non-iso-8601 retarded formats out there
Please put it on the frontlog;-)

This would be very useful (if not expected), thanks.
Christer Russberg commented
I think this would be great to have in Teams!

It´s should be a must, not a choise.
It's already in Word, in Outlook. We need it in Teams.
This is ironically the worst way to push for making this feature a reality. As of today (6-may-2020) this feature request only has 1027 Votes. And that is more than two years since it was suggested. Users who need spell checking in other languages quite probably don't even speak English well enough to find this forum, then to find this post, and then to Vote it up. If decisions are made primarily based on the popularity of an idea in this forum, then this feature will never come to fruition because there are millions of English only speakers who won't care if this ever happens or not.
It should just be taken for granted that spell checking in multiple languages is an essential feature for a software solution being promoted on the global market.
