Mutliple Blogs in different languages

    Question

  • Hi,
     
    I maintain currently two blogs using WLW, but these blogs are in
    different languages (german and english). Because of my great writing
    skills, I do rely on the spell checking :) - but this is a PITA, because
    I always have to go into the options to switch the language, depending
    on what blog I'm currently writing.
     
    Is there any way to associate the language to the currently selected blog?

  • Henning,

    That's a interesting question...

    From the options in Windows Live Writer, it's not possible [right now ] to assign a language to a specific blog, but I would offer this suggestion/workaround; research AutoHotKey.

    www.autohotkey.com

    You say you've to switch between languages; I understand, but if a macro could do this for you [...] it wouldn't be so bad... right?

    I offer you this...

    ::^g  ;CTRL-g for German Blog

    ;; Switch to German Blog
    send, {altdown}b{altup}
    send, {down 5} ; to the blog

    sleep, 500 ;pause

    ;; Switch the language

    send, {altdown}t{altup}
    send, o ;options

    send, {down 5} ; to the language options
    send, {space}{tab} ; language selection box

    send, {home} ;top of the list
    send, {down 4} ;select language you want

    ;; on my machine this selects United States English, but change the number to whatever you need.

    send, {enter} ; close options.

    return

     

    You could improve this, but this shows roughly how to select a blog and change the language with a single key stroke.

    I hope this helps...

     

    Until next time,

    Yeah, AHK is a good idea - that didn't cross my mind. Besides from this workaround this would be a good suggestion to the WLW team to attach this setting to the blog instead of making this a global setting.
