You can set Numbers to flag spelling errors as you type, and you can check your entire spreadsheet or selected text for misspellings. Numbers can also check grammar and look up the definitions of words.
Use the Spelling and Grammar window to check spelling and grammar, add terms to the dictionary, and change the language of the dictionary. When you add terms to the dictionary, you teach Numbers new words so that it doesn’t mark them as misspelled.

Choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Show Spelling and Grammar (from the Edit menu at the top of your computer screen).
