    I have searched for this for eons and have never found how to do this.

    I use the Spanish keyboard layout and the English keyboard layout. I use command+space to switch between the two - no problem at all.

    I write a lot in English and Spanish, and I mean I will chat with someone in Spanish, switch to Mail, write an English e-mail and then switch to another app and type in Spanish. Whenever I do this, I must select Edit -> Spelling -> Spelling... and choose between English and Spanish (I hate spelling mistakes).

    What I want to do is a way in which whenever I choose the English keyboard layout, the English spell checker is automatically selected. Likewise, when I select the Spanish keyboard layout, the Spanish spell checker will be selected.

    I have looked into Applescript and have found thing like this. If there is any way of doing this, please post!! Thanks.

    #3 any Office app, from the menus on top, just go Tools --> Language...

    Select your language, mark as default and you are good to go!! :)
