Setting language of a selected text in Office apps.

Having used Office for many years, I find one of the poorest designed items is the way setting the language for a selected text is done. I its indeed very annoying in some of the applications (OneNote, Powerpoint). I can't understand why there is no a simpler way than having to select a language from a list of hundreds of items every time. In Powerpoint, double clicking does not close the dialog, you must also click the close button. This can be partially solved creating macros and assigning them to a button, but OneNote does not allow to create macros.
I work documents in four languages, and some of them have a heavy mix of them, so this becomes a nigthmare.
Is there maybe a suggestion on this, where could I suggest Office developers about this as a wishlist item?
