Stilus allows you to configure the language of the interface regardless of the language in which your text is written. In other words, you can choose a language for the proofreading assistant regardless of the language of the text to analyze.

The user dictionary in Stilus for Word can be edited to add unknown words to the Stilus lexical base.
While academic language norms are commonly accepted by the majority of the speakers, it is common that publishing houses, mass media or big companies want to make their texts conform to the standards established by their own manuals of style (as for Spanish, these standards do not always match the norms of the Academy). The Prisa Group or Unidad Editorial are examples of companies that have incorporated their own language standards to Stilus.
