    We're using telerik:RadHtmlField in our MOSS site as rich-text editor.

    The problem is that it does not get configured for multilanguages.It is required that the appropriate language dictionary should get picked for spell check, based on language preference settings(used IE). For example, if user's language prefernce is french then the french dictionary should be picked, provided the language pack is installed and dictionary exists. If language prefernce changes then apropriate dictionary should be used.

    Following options are already tried: 

    The language pack are installed.We tried with following settings in the ToolsFile.
    <Languages>
       <language code="en-US" title="English"></language>
       <language code="fr-FR" title="French"></language>
    </Languages>

    and configuring  the ConfigFile with:
    <property name="Language">fr-FR</property>
    <property name="SpellDictionaryLanguage">fr-FR</property>


    It will be great if any body can provide any pointer or lay down sequence of steps(with values to be used) to achieve this.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Jaswinder,

    Let me elaborate a little bit on how the editor dropdown buttons works - the editor's dropdown buttons (in this case the Ajax Spellchecker) are designed to work with already selected value. But, when you use the dropdown button for the first time you should first select the value to be applied (the Language). The next time you click on the dropdown button it will automatically use the previously selected value. If you want to change the value, just use the little arrow. However, in the ASP.NET version of RadEditor for MOSS (4.x), when spellchecking in different languages, you need to always select the spellchecking language, before spellchecking. This issue is fixed in the new ASP.NET AJAX version of RadEditor for MOSS (5.x) and once you select a language it will be automatically used.

    For convenience, I attached a sample video that demonstrates how the editor's dropdown buttons works.

    Best regards,
