    How about instead you install additional dictionaries and switch languages? Jeg kan kjøre stavekontroll på Norsk helt fint.. Feb 16, 2013 at 18:31

Two main points spring to mind:

  1. There is no Stack Overflow here.

  2. Switch your dictionary to English.

I'm sorry but that's really the only response I can provide.

It may seem unfair, but SO is an English-language website and it may be that you need to find a friend who is more familiar with English to help you compose your post.
