Hi,

I'm French and I use my Mac and all apps in their English versions.

In Teams, when I write a message in French, everything is underlined in red because of the spelling/grammar check that is by default in English...

It could be very very convenient to have the ability to set the language in Teams and avoid using the same language as the OS installation.

Spell check for non English is not yet there ... 

Please check the  Teams user voice ... and add your voice there..

for selecting  your language from the teams settings

Hope this helps,

Unfortunately even when you change your language it doesn't change spell-checking. And also GUI language seem to reset to system language when restarting Teams (at least on Windows 10).

 

This is a pain when working in two-language company. I believe a quite common problem (and probably one of reasons why people use other chats even when they could use Teams).
