Have Chrome autodetect language before spelling checking?

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Chrome can automatically spell check emails I am writing in Gmail. I have two language installed: Dutch and English in both UK and US versions. And I type emails in both languages regularly. However, that requires me to switch the setting all the time:

Can I have Chrome automatically detect which language I am typing my email in, and automatically pick the correct language for spell checking?

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

This does not seem to be possible currently. See http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95604 at the very bottom. It suggests what you did…

Method 2

You can enable the beta version of “simultaneous spellchecking in multiple languages”.

go to about:flags and enable Enable Multilingual Spellchecker:

Method 3

Automatic language detection is now a part of chrome. They completely removed the option to select language and of course automatic part fails to detect the right language often.

So now instead of having to choose the language each time, we have to live without spell check at all until it decides to work again.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
