I cannot change the spell check language in WF Pro away from US English.

The active translation memory is Catalan/UK English.

I have tried:

Edit / Preferences / Spelling / Hunspell / English (UK) / Apply / OK

But the spell check language remains on US English.

What am I doing wrong?

Dear Laurence,

Are you sure that the target language of your project (and consequently TM) is English (United Kingdom)?

Please have a look at the very bottom of WFP interface. Can you see a the project language codes looking like this ca_ES-en_GB


Actually, if you set the language locales of your project correctly, you would not need to change any settings for the spell-check; WFP automatically uses the dictionary of the target language/locale for spelling check. Even if you tried to write a word like "color" (American English), it will consider it incorrect and will suggest "colour" (British English) when you press F7.

Also, you can activate the option: "Check spelling as you type" (Edit > Preferences > Spelling)

TM in UK English, but project in "English" English Dec 9, 2009

This was the problem: although I had specified that the TM was in UK English, the project it is running in is non-specific English (which WF Pro interprets as US English, I imagine). Anyway, I have tested it and it works now. Thanks.
