I'm sure notes users from the countries who have to write letters in different languages will support my idea. I sugest to make possible to use more than one primary directory for spell cheking and to make spell checker switch between languages automaticaly. Here is an example I'm facing almost every day: I have Russian dictionary as my default for spell checker, but when I need to write a new mail in English, doesn't metter do I use english text in the body of russian letter or I'm creating a new one, I have to write the text forst, then select all letters and manualy switch spell checker to english. I need to do it all the time, because I can't add english as my second dictionary, so spell checker think all english words are mistyped russian. Not very user feandly, yes?
So I want to have two (or even more) dictionaries for spell cheker so I don't have to do this silly mokey's manual work all the time I need to write something in english or any language other then russian.
Thank you and I really need your support! This feature is really usefull for us, non US and UK users! :)

f.e. MS Word provides an option to detect language automaticly. Would be a nice one in Notes!
2) Fred Janssen159 (14 Oct 2009)
Very good idea!!
And just to be thorough: switching the language through Text Properties is not a viable solution when you need to created text in 2 (or more) different languages all day.

By the way, where do I find the other dictionaries?

It is even useful for a some US users who want to have text accepted where they use the original (UK) English.

As an ex-Australian I can share the frustration of living in a country that adopts both US and UK English. Some people prefer/expect spelling in one version or another so it is a pain to only be able to select a single dictionary.

Thank you all for your support! Hope we will make this problem more visible for notes dev team.

2 Rob - dictionaries for many languages are installed with Notes client by default, but you can add more, because every dictionary are just files with extension .dic . You can find some in the internet. I don't know if there are some additional dictionaries made by IBM, but I find in google a lot of them made by third parties.

Yes, I agree with this idea! I would like to see automatic language detection such as in MS products. Thanks for great idea!

Nikolay, very good idea. We're really miss this functionality in Notes and Symphony.
