Default Powerpoint language detection settings


How can I change the settings so that whenever I take a text from a colleague's presentation the language set is always the one I have on my settings?

I am having issues taking text from other colleagues, then some words are highlighted because their language settings are different.

I know I can select the text, ignore and set it back to my language, but is there any automatic setting for it?

Thank you.

There's really no way to do that.

We have an add In that can set the default language for a PRESENTATION (not the general default) and should do what you need but it isn't free (not expensive)
