Quickly Create a Custom Dictionary

Adding items to a custom dictionary one by one is a tedious exercise. Here’s how to add an entire list of words to your existing custom dictionary, or as a separate, new custom dictionary.

When Word performs a Spelling and Grammar check on your document, it uses whichever dictionary is available for your language. You can select ToolsLanguageSet Language to change the dictionary, as shown in Figure 4-11. Any language listed with a checkmark next to it has a dictionary installed on your computer.

Word uses the dictionary for the language specified here

For example, if you’re working on a document for a client from the United Kingdom, and you change the language to “English (U.K.),” Word marks words such as “color” as misspellings and prompts you to change them to their English counterparts, as shown in Figure 4-12.
