in vim7 gives the "general" information
To set spell-check by default for certain filetypes you can write your
own ftplugin files that contain the line
For more information on this see
I doubt vim can auto-detect the (human) language of a file, but you can
always put some mappings in your .vimrc to switch quickly between
map <F4> :set spell!<CR>:set spell?<CR> " Toggle spelling set to <F4>
nmap \sg :setlocal spell spelllang=de_20 <CR> " German spelling
nmap \sa :setlocal spell spelllang=en_us <CR> " American spelling
