Changing of proofing language after document appending


Aspose.Words for Java v. 18.11 is changing the proofing language for document text after appending the document to another document.

“Empty.docx” has not text and it’s language is “English”.
“Document.docx” has two paragraphs and their language is “German (Switzerland)”

After appending the seocnd document “Document.docx” to empty “Empy.docx” the language of text of the second document changed from “German” to “Russian”.

I think it’s a bug of Aspose.Words.

Best regards, Evgeniy
