    Hello,
    I frequently write e-mails in English and French. In French I need the Orthograph corrections and accents etc .
    Is there an easy way to switch from one language to another……or do I have to change the language settings each time ?
    Thank you

    If your app store account is based in Germany then I doubt you will be able to change the language.

    Regards
