From a reply on another list:

Hi Tammy,
I am just providing the link and info (I have not encountered this issue). And the description of the problem is awful! ï

From http://www.wordbanter.com/showthread.php?p=201535, about halfway down.

Here is the fix for Spell Check malfunction in MS office 2007:
It has been noticed that in some cases after install Office 2007 the spell checker may cease to work properly and will be stuck in French mode.
If this occurs:
1. Exit all Microsoft Office Applications
2. Run Regedit.exe.
3. Delete the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared
Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Override\en-US
Once you restart the application it will work correctly.

Apparently, Office 2007 breaks the spell check. Not sure that MS has a fix yet.

I've seen this myself several times. I think it's a bug in Word 7 (I had also seen it in XP) - I just set the language back to English and start over the spellcheck. It's annoying, but ...I haven't figured out a way to fix it.

Argh - I have seen this before and for the life of me, can't remember how
it got started or how I fixed it. Word 2007 on Win7. I have set the value
for Enabled Editing Language to English (United States) and for Primary
Editing Language to English (United States), but when I run the Spelling and
Grammar function, what is being used is French in one particular document at
one particular point in the document and then the spelling/grammar check
remains stuck in French.



Here's the scenario:



1.) Open a new document. Type some garbage in it. Under Review, check
Spelling and Grammar. The Spelling and Grammar dialog box shows English
(United States).

2.) Open the wigged out document. Under Review, check Spelling and Grammar.
. The Spelling and Grammar dialog box shows English (United States) when the
document is first opened. Fine.

3.) Start spell checking through the document at the beginning of the
document. Document lands on a word in this one particular table. Boom -
Spelling and Grammar dialog box now shows French as the language. Sigh.

4.) Keep spell checking in the document. Language is never reset to English
even after moving out of the table to check the rest of the document.

5.) Open another document with wigged out document still open.

6.) Spelling and grammar stuck in French.

7.) Close wigged out document.

8.) Open another document or even the wigged out one. Spelling and grammar
back to English.



And yes, I have deleted and recreated this table at least five times now.
Sigh.
