Default

In Word, language is a text attribute, just like bold or italics, so the language at the insertion point may be incorrect even if the default language is correct.

In the Language dialog box (Review | Language | Set Proofing Language), clear the "Detect language automatically" option; that way, you prevent Word from changing the language at the insertion point. The setting applies to all files that you open in Word.

For existing documents whose language formatting is already incorrect, you may have to other choice than to select all the text and manually (re-)apply Dutch via the Language dialog box. Click the OK option (not Set as Default).
