A drawing can contain text that
alternates between different languages. For example, if English is your computer
system’s default language, and you also have a French language module installed,
you can use the writing tools to check the spelling or grammar of both French
and English text. When you run the spelling checker, Grammatik, or the
thesaurus, CorelDRAW checks words, phrases, and sentences according to their
assigned language. This prevents foreign words from being marked as
misspellings. You can use the writing tools the same way you would if the text
were all in one language.
You can also check for the formatting conventions of another language. For
example, the spelling checker can format all dates in a drawing according to
French conventions (such as “12 avril 2005”).
Many of the languages support hyphenation. Hyphenation lets you reduce the
raggedness of text along the right margin by dividing a word that falls at the
end of a line, instead of forcing the entire word to the next line.
