Chapter 6. Using the Writing Tools > Switching to a Different Language

Switching to a Different Language

We are truly working in a global marketplace. It's not unusual to carry on business with companies located all across the globe. When you write in a different language, you must be able to do more than just enter, display, and print the non-English characters. You also need to be able to correct spelling, check grammar, and look up terms in the Thesaurus in addition to using the proper date conventions and currency symbols. WordPerfect supports multiple languages in three ways:

  • You can mark sections of a document as being in one of the more than 30 languages supported by WordPerfect. Additional language modules can be installed that support the Spell Checker, Grammatik, Thesaurus, Dictionary, and Hyphenation.

  • A Language Resource File (LRS file), which comes with the program and each language module, contains the information for formatting numbers and footnote-continued messages, among other things. You can edit this file to customize these options.

  • You can purchase WordPerfect in a different language so that the menus, prompts, messages, dictionaries, and thesauri are all in that language.
