Chapter 5. Using the Writing Tools > Switching to a Different Language

Switching to a Different Language

Writing in different languages is more than being able to enter, display, and print 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 an entire document, or just sections of it, 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, the Thesaurus, the Dictionary, and Hyphenation.

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

  • 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.
