Change default Spellchecker

    Question

  • Hello All,

    users requesting a change of the default spellchecker from english (US) to english (UK) for their site collection(s). We tried to add a JavaScript to the Masterpage as explained in one of the links here (https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/3fb3fb96-d84e-4784-9ab6-c0f347d07adc/how-to-change-spell-check-default-language-to-english-uk?forum=sharepointadminprevious) ..

    <script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>
    L_Language_Text = 2057;
    </script>

    Adding the JavaScript to the Masterpage does not have any effect.This was the most recent help we could find, but it's SP 2010. how can this goal be archived in the current version of SP Online?

    Best regards and thanks for help
