Okay, this is so easy, I honestly hope I'm just too blind to see:

I have a notebook with german keyboard layout.
Respectively I have the language in windows set to German, so the labels on the keyboard match the OS's key mapping.
In WORD 2016 I want to set the language for the spell/grammar check to English (Ireland) since I'm writing english and want to have my spelling checked without 'optimising' beeing marked as wrong or autocorrected to 'optimizing'.
I set the default language in WORD to English (Ireland), I write a few words and it's back to English (US).
I deleted the English (US) keyboard from my windows, as well as in WORD.
No matter, it keeps going back to English (US).

So - how do I force WORD to use the language I told it to while having the right key mapping for my keyboard?

I did look for answers, but the only thing I found was the 'here is an unconvenient solution, change your OS keyboard layout' road.

This is a 'make a checkbox "disable automatic language detection"' kind of issue that is annoying, super easy to fix and shouldn't occur in a software like this developed for decades.

And if there is such an option - make it easier to find. I spent too much time on this, when I actually wanted to write down something important.

Best Regards,
Hendrik
