I'm using Windows 8 with the display language set to english. Now when I use Skype the app picks up on this and uses an english dictionary for spell checking. This would be fine if not for the fact that I'm danish and are getting very annoyed with the red lines telleing me I can't spell.
So... Does anyone know where i can change this setting and is it a Skype or a Windows setting?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Skype apps uses Windows settings.
Unfortunately, not. You have to change systems default language.
Wow this completely sucks it's so **bleep** annoying! I hate that it won't stop correcting me!!!! Is there a way to at least turn autocorrect off? Or make it stop?! I speak 3 different languages with people from all over the world! It's extremely annoying that I have to constantly be corrected over little things because I typed them right but skype corrected me to english! It needs to stop!! x) There haaaaasss to be a way!

I had same problem.
Just set up 3 different keyboard, go control panel -> language (i use view by small icons) -> add language -> find your language -> then option on that language -> there click "add an input method" and choose your native keyboard layout (don't forgot remove native layout for that language ).
That's it. You can change language correction just by hitting win key + spacebar and autocorrection will change but your native layout will stay ^_^
enjoy the day!

It's quite remarkable how this can be an issue in a communications tool used world wide, most often between people with different languages?
A quick recommendation: Fire the person responsible for planting the idea of mapping the language dictionary in Skype with Windows native language. What a complete **bleep**!
I am less and less surprised these day about the usability misstakes being made by all our major companies. They tend to focus on new "cool" functionality, rather than actually making sure the user experience is at its best. We see it all the time. Just look at Android. It makes me sad.
