I would like to use spelling corrections in Word for mac 2011. Since my language (slovenian) is not included, I had to find and include a custom dictionary.

The installation goes like this:

I import the dictionary, and have to select the language. If I select slovenian (and set the Tools -> Language... to Default slovenian), no text is underlined at all. If I select a different language instead, for example swedish (also in Tools -> Language...), the misspelled words are underlined correctly. However, words that are included in the swedish dictionary are not underlined, and the suggestions for underlined words are both slovenian and swedish.

How can I properly set up my dictionary so no other languages would be interfering?
