Word - Working with different languages

October 2016


I'm working on some translation project for my school. My problem is that the word document comprising the text is made up several sections, written in different languages.

So how do I quickly swicth between English, French and Italian, in order to make full use of the autocorrect options?


  • Select/Higlight part of your text (e.g written in french)
  • Click on the Review Tab
  • Click on the Set Language button.
  • Select your Language.

You can perform this operation for the different section of your text.
