Default Language German - wrong

For the english usa installation, using file explorer right click does not initialize a document where spell checker will work. 

I believe this is because soffice.odt is not properly configured. 

In tools/options/language settings/languages the default language is german. it should be english (usa). attachment added

If you open soffice.odt in writer, at the center bottom, it shows none. It should be english (usa). seems i can only add 1 attachment so can't show this one

When both of these changes are made, spell checker will work for file explorer / right click.
