Hello,

I use localized version of latest Libreoffice (Polish), but I'm working on English document. So far I easily switched to English spell checking. However I cannot force Libreoffice to use English across whole document. For example, when I add caption to table I get:

Tabela 1: Table description

instead

Table 1: Table description

It always use Polish translation for captions of table, image, etc.

Try to change "local Settings" and/or "Userinterface" to english. You find it in Tools->Options, Language Settings->Languages.

Are you using the multi-language version? I assume that this could help you. I install always the English-US version (=multi-language version) and select the 4 languages I am using and never had the problem you mentioned.

When you install the multi-language version for the first time, I recommend a customized solution. This allows you to select the language you want to use. When you upgrade, the selection is done the same way automatically.

You can change the language of the current document via Tools / Options / Language Settings / Default languages for documents. Choose your desired language and check For the current document only.
