Hello everyone,
Today I was doing some translation work in Word (Office 2010) and my spell check settings wouldn't change from my French to English dictionary. The default dictionary is set to English, though the document was originally in French. I tried pasting my text into a new document but got the same result. Any ideas much appreciated!

In MSWord go to Review, select the entire text and then go to Set Language and select English. Voilá... it will use the English spell checker.
