Go to Tools -> Options, expand the Language Settings node and click on
Languages. There you can set the default language for documents. A tick
mark next to the language name indicates that a spell checker is
available for that language. You can also set the language on the fly
while writing a document. In that case go to Tools -> Language and
choose the appropriate sub-menu.
