Most of my design work is in English but I am currently designing a Spanish book and I need to change the 'language' to Spanish. NOT the UI (I want to keep all interfaces in English). It's especially imortant when it comes to hyphenation breaks. The text is hyphenating as if its an English word not Spanish. How do I change the 'text' so that InDesign realises it's Spanish?

Paragraph styles control the look of the text and that is where you set the language to Spanish.
