Default customized autocorrect entries in both languages?

i have word2007 in windows xp pro. my problem is that i work in two languages
- english uk and swedish - (as a translator) and my customized autocorrect
entries are no longer available in both. they were before, but disappeared a
couple of years ago whenever swedish was selected. is there some smart way of
recovering them?
many thanks!
stephen

If you want an AutoCorrect entry to be available no matter which language is
applied to the insertion point, make sure that the entry is *formatted* (it
will then be stored in the Normal template).

To create a formatted AutoCorrect entry, type the text (or other contents)
that you want added, select it (them) and then display the AutoCorrect
dialog box. Type a name for the entry, click Add, and then close the dialog.
If/when you are prompted to save the Normal template, choose to do so.

thanks, stefan, but is there any way of globally formatting the two thousand
or so customized entries i have in plain text retroactively in one fell swoop,
do you suppose? don't think i have the time to fish them out one by one. :-(
the procedure you describe below is the one i've always used but by default
it arrives in the dialogue box as plain text, not formatted. i'm almost never
prompted to save the normal template.

Perhaps you could use a macro to "convert" the AutoCorrect entries; you will
have to ask in a programming newsgroup about that (try
microsoft.public.word.vba.general for example).

Note that when you create entries based on the current selection, you should
verify that the appropriate option ("Formatted text" or "Plain text") is
selected in the dialog box.
