Multiple Proofing Language at same time in Microsoft Editor
As it is now it only possible to select one language at the time for spelling correction in the Microsoft Editor. I'm writing emails in both my own language och English and want to be able to use spelling correction for both without having to go to the settings and change every time I'm going to write an new email in an other language than the last email.
This feature exist for example in the Office desktop applications and Chrome web browser spell check.
Sent a MSN News I liked to my brother. When he got it item was in China langue instead of English. Why?? This has happen many time lately!!!!
It is SUPREMELY frustrating to have to chose two languages only. i live in Spain and get Spanish, i am Dutch, but get only English as a second language. i communicate with French and German people as well....there are Swedes here and Norwegians, Hungarians, Slovenians, Greeks...i could go on.. this is 2020!!!

Microsft Editor Edge extension with use the same spell checker can be configured for both languages. I thought ok, I'll just turn outlook spelling off. But no, This extension does not work in Outlook.
Just turn off spell checking; the browser will take over. For Firefox and Chrome do a great job at handling multiple languages. MS is not the best software company in the world.....

Really a must for any email app.
It does not make any sense this feature is available in desktop outlook and not outlook 365/ outlook.com
If auto detecting any language is not possible, maybe enabling spell/grammar check in a set of languages (2,3) like in desktop app would also solve most use cases.
You can have your browsers built in spellcheck take over by DISABLING all the features in Microsoft Editor. 😁
I am struggling with this also. I write multiple messages in each language and can't be going into settings to change the MS Editor language each time.

Disabling the corrections features in the web app worked, Chrome took over and now I can use Chrome's spell check in three languages again :)
Following comment from 29 October I disabled the feature from the Web app and Chrome is doing the spell checking in the email
In a company using multible languages this is a must.
Another solution could be to add the option to diable the feature from the webapp and let the browser spell checking be used. Chrome has a an ok multilingual spell checking.
PLEASE! this was an essential feature when working in multilingual companies that is now lost. I was able to start typing in a second language and Outlook immediately recognized it and adjusted the spellchek, including accents accordingly.MS Editor seems not to recognize french accents (or lack of them in error) which is effectively makes it useless.
I have the same problem.
For those affected by this annoying issue: there is a work around for the time being by disabling both the "correction" toggles in the Editor settings. this allows your browser to do it instead, which in many cases is multi-language capable
This is really super frustrating and the main reason that I prefer Gmail to Outlook emails. The language is a pain to change and I write at least 10 emails per day in my native language and 10 in English. Not having multiple language option is so annoying.
I would to like to add that this is a basic function in almost every other microsoft program. I would like to see this added for the same reason as well.
