void DetectLanguage()

The results of the DetectLanguage method are stored in the LanguageID property on a character by character basis.

The DetectLanguage method checks all available text in the document (headers, footers, text boxes, and so forth).

If the DetectLanguage method has already been applied to the specified text, the LanguageDetected property is set to true. To re-evaluate the language of the specified text, you must first set the LanguageDetected property to false.
