Portuguese Spell Checker for Word 2007

Hello Folks

I have a (licensed!) copy of MS Office 2007 in English installed on my PC.

Of course, it does English (UK & US) spell checking OK. But as I live in Portugal and write a lot of documents in Portuguese, I need to install spell checking for Portuguese.

Does anyone know how this can be done? And do I have to pay for it?

Hey. I don't have Office 2007 but hopefully the terminology won't have changed too drastically from previous versions.

What you need to change (or install) is the dictionary Word uses. This will be somewhere in the tools > options panel under a tab called "spelling and grammar" or "languages" or something similar. I'm afraid I don't have Office on hand to check exactly.

I'm pretty sure that when you do a spell-check (Hit F7) then from there you can select the dictionary you are using from a dropdown box and there is some sort of "change dictionary" button.

I'm afraid this is as helpful as I can be without a copy to look at but the good news is that you won't have to pay for it. When you select the new dictionary, Office should prompt you to insert your installation CD. In newer versions, you might even be able to just download it!
Hi AftershockVibe

I too was able to fix this problem in Office 2003, but I'm afraid it doesn't seem quite so simple in Office 2007. So I need help from someone who has actually done this in Office 2007.

Thanks anyway.

Thanks for that.

Sure, I know about that solution, but I was wondering if there is a more economical alternative...
