Description A (Andy) 2014-03-28 17:41:25 UTC
Problem Description: 
In WRITER you have the possibility to select a language from the menu TOOLS, but in CALC you unfortunately don't have this option.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open WRITER

Observation: You have the option to select the language for "For Selection", "For Paragraph" and "For all Text".

3. Open CALC

Observation: You have don't have an option to select a language.  Hence, it would be good to have here also the option to select a language like "For Selection", "For the Whole Sheet" and "For all Sheets".

Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release

Hi Andy,
language selection in calc is made through cell style.
It's possible to choose the language in [Ctrl+1] Menu/Format/Cell - Numbers tab for the cell format and Fonts tab for the cell language. And you can create a style for every language you like.

Thanks for your reply.  I know this way, even if it has also still problems (see Bug 76714).
With my enhancement request I would like to further improve the UI by adding the possibility to also change the language with the menu TOOLS.  I think this is important, more user-friendly, more consistent and intuitive, because if you are working with WRITER and then switch to CALC you will look vainly for the language option in the TOOLS menu.  For a user it is not intuitive, that in CALC changing the language is different to WRITER.

Sounds good to me -> NEW.

Checked that those options are not available yet: LibO 4.4 RC1 on Win 8.1 32-bit.
