First time Libreoffice/Ubuntu user. I work as a translator and a writer so LibreOffice writer is one of the most important applications on the machine for me. How do I make autocorrect adapt to the document language?

Libreoffice-writer 1: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Extras --> Options --> Language Preferences --> Language --> "Standard language for documents" --> Western --> Choose a language from the drop-down-menu

(Menu Options might be slightly different as I'm having German GUI package installed)

Hi! Perhaps I was being unclear: I did set the standard language to Swedish. The question is precisely why it still autocorrects for English although language is set to Swedish. Thanks!
