I have a pesky html document and spellcheck is not working for some reason. First of all, the document was too big, I got an error message about too many mistakes and Word couldn't spellcheck. So, I split it up into manageable chunks (between 7000 - 9000 words each) and re-set the language to French-France (for some reason, it was set to English - UK) and changed Word settings to "check spelling while typing" again. Automatic language detection is turned off.

Now Word is recognizing the French (source) but when I open segments, the target segment is also being identified as French, so every word I type in US English has a red lineicon_frown.gif

My TM has the proper language codes (FR-FR and EN-US), what could be the cause of my problem? Help - I really need spellcheck as I type here because this is one of those hard-to-read documents with lots of html code with a little text interspersed ... I need those red lines to work properly so I can catch my typos and mistakes easily.

I think I have determined where the problem lies, I am using CNTRL + spacebar a lot to prevent the internal tag style from bleeding onto the rest, and that is when things go wrong.
