I am trying to change my proofing language for the Spelling and Grammar checker in Word 2010 but I am having problems making this change permanent. I have installed an Afrikaans dictionary and it is working fine, but even if I do go to the settings and change the proofing language to Afrikaans, it still reverts back to English the next time I open a new or blank document. How do I change this setting for all documents and not just one specific document? I couldn't find a solution for this on Google, however I could manage to change the proofing language in both Office 2003 & 2007 but not in 2010 as it keeps reverting back to English the moment I close Word or open a different document. I bet Microsoft does not use Office 2010 themselves, in fact I can bet that when you come into their offices you'll be seeing Apple machines everywhere using either LibreOffice, OpenOffice or LaTEX. If anyone can give me a hint, then I'll really appreciate it.
