I wish my mac would speak the Queens English

May 23, 2008

It seems a little more complex than necessary to get British English on my mac.
It seemed to keep reverting to US english when i was doing a spell checker…

But I think I’ve finally cracked it.

Here’s the deal.

Going to system preferences/international/languages (not “input menu”) and putting British English at the top of the list should normally do the trick,

Use the Edit button in the languages pane if British English is not yet on the list.

also tried going to Edit > Spelling > Spelling > Dictionary and set that to British English?
