    So I'm using a swedish version of Word, right, and I'm writing an essay about translations, and as I'm doing so, I've got the spellchecking thingie running.

    There I am, copying from an English text as it happens, which I'm then going to compare with the swedish translation of it when I notice one of them curly underlines under a word, and I'm not quite sure why as I think the text I've just copied is grammatically and otherwise correct.

    So, curious as I am, I investigate, and this is what I get:





    Guess what. That's not swedish.

    Now, I know it's a swedish version, and I haven't changed any settings, but suddenly...it gives me German. (And while I do know some german, I don't know enough to read that.)

    And btw, the text says that some stars are burning, so that madness about adjective mis-use of something or other isn't really applicable.

    WTF?

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    That was uncalled for

    I dunno' why it talks to me in German, maybe it thinks I should learn more


    Could be a new drive to promote education, ms-style. Few bugs now, but eventually it'll make sense I hope.
