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".
Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to share that users who write different messages in different languages, will now see spellchecking relevant to the language they are actively using when typing a message while using the Microsoft Teams Desktop App on Windows.

I cannot believe that it is not added yet ...
This is necessary for most companies outside the U.S. Obviously, some people only speak English, while others speak the native tongue of the country and English. Spell check for two languages should be a minimum (chrome supports this for many languages at once).

5 months, and not a word about it, that's an absolute essential, please prioritize this higher
In a world where business is done in multiple languages with transnational teams, not having this functionality is very disappointing,
Another disappointed user commented
Really surprising that something basic like the keyboard input language (which is a function of the Windows OS for a long time) is broken in so many new applications from the vendor as the OS is ...
At least disable the spell checking if the language is not English.

... since Nov 09th . 5months down the road the Multi-language spell check is still unavailable. Great job MS !!
If it wasn't for the upper management to force this ***** app, I wouldn't waste more than 5minutes on it before uninstalling it.
do you have any estimate when Teams will be able to handle multiple spelling checker?
Can you posted it on this page so we all know?
I also need the Dutch spelling checker it ia a must have

Working with international customers requires communication in different languages. I would consider this an absolute MUST for a tool like Teams

It's a must. I'll be using Slack until it's resolved!
Wasn't the whole input language thing in Windows meant to address this issue? It has been around for quite a while, but I've hardly ever seen it being used, even in Microsoft's own products.
In my case, I have 2 input languages: US English (with the US keyboard) and Dutch (with the US International keyboard).
When I switch from one input language to the other, I'd expect the spellchecker to follow this setting.

Here also, working in a Dutch plant of an Italian multinational we use several languages. All my English is now underlined in Teams, so basically I don't have a spelling checker. We also use Workplace, and there the transition between languages goes automatically. Therefore, we tend to use Workplace by Facebook instead of MS Teams.
French, being one of the languages of the UN, should be considered seriously!
Government of Canada works in English and French and it's really annoying to see all the text I write in French be underlined. Also, for more complex statements, I have to cut and paste into Word, correct and then cut and paste back.
We need that feature, it is very annoying for bilingual people.
Do you have an idea when it'll be available?
Thank you :-)
Do we have news on that?
Thank you! :)
This is a very needed feature. Lots of companies only implement the English office version and use local language in combination with other languages to communicate.
This feature would be really beneficial to the end user.
This really needs to happen, I'm Dutch, my team is Dutch and I have all my apps in English (because I'm a developer and it is much easier to work this way), but all of my text is marked red in teams because I'm not writing English :(
