I have been using English and Japanese both in msexcel and LO calc for many years. I receive an excel file and then make a duplicate. When I want to send a draft, I save it as an excel file and send it to the editor. I sometimes have problems when special characters are used.

I use the input method frameworks fcitx and ibus. It allows me to flip between languages in any document. Libreoffice Version: on Linux mint 20.0 and Language settings > languages > Default language for documents > Western -Default: English. Asian: Japanese

I think you are at cross--purposes here. Yes, the questioner can enter English and Japanese text into different parts of a spreadsheet document; indeed, that is how the Excel-formatted documents arrive with him. He needs to add German, and I'm sure he can do this - umlauts and eszetts and all. So the fonts are OK. But what he would like is to keep the *language* settings for English and German applied to different columns - presumably so that the German text doesn't get marked as English misspellings! That works in LibreOffice, but gets lost when resaved into an Excel format.
