How can I set a OneNote page permanently on English (at an otherwise German school)?

Martin Villwock 0 Reputation points

I work with OneNote using the class notebook functions. There is one problem that I, as an English teacher at a German school, constantly encounter:

OneNote seems to be set to German as a standard language - which makes sense because the students other subjects are all in German. However, if they type during English lessons it would be great to get the auto-correct feedback in English - and the German auto-correct obviously becomes extremely annoying.

I don't see a way of saving the entire page as "language set to English", I can only ever mark parts of the text and then set to English - and then this does not work on iPads (which my students use).

Any suggestions to make this smoother?

    Hi @Martin Villwock,

    I want to help you, but your issues focus more on OneNote on iPad and you use class notebook functions, I would suggest you post a new thread on Microsoft Answers Community --- OneNote for education.

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.

    Thank you for your understanding.
