the language setting is also in the Font tab for all paragraph styles. Did you notice this?

Thanks, Dan. It's funny: I thought I knew styles, which are indispensable to any kind of serious writing, but never noticed that Language setting in the Character style Font tab.
Every day is a school day.

This requires knowing how to use styles. For the column in German, all of the styles you use (paragraph, heading, or character styles need to be modified to list German as the language. For the column in English, all of the styles you use (paragraph, heading, or character styles need to be modified to list English as the language.This results in two sets of styles, one for German and one for English. For detailed instructions on doing this, you need to download the latest Writer Guide or download the the chapter on styles and the chapters on styles from the Getting Started Guide. Or, you could just download the entire Writer Guide so you would have a good reference for other questions about Writer.

Sorry, but I was hoping you would ask HOW the spell-check language is set separately on each column.
[I hate it when someone says "Of course" on an issue I don't see.] ;-)
Since you grasped it immediately, I'm afraid I must ask one of you: How do you do that?

A two-column TABLE seems to be a very smart solution for this. Thank you, Harvey.

I sometimes have to translate documents. So that I can see the
relationship of the texts I put one language on the right and the other
left on the page. For that I use a two-column table which works quite
well. Not sure if that is the most elegant solution for what you want.
Of course you can format each column as you want (e.g. with no table
borders), and the spell-check language can be set separately on each

Hello everyone.

I would like to write a book in German and English in parallel and
the German text flow on the left and the English text on the right,
two columns of German on the left and English on the right. Is that
technically possible in LO Writer? I haven't found anything about it

Best, Ulf
