Word of the Day screensaver options?

I know it’s been possible on some systems I use to set the Word of the Day screen saver to other languages, such as German. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to enable that on systems that are only offering me three choices: Automatic, English, or an Asian language. Anyone know how to get the screensaver to access other dictionaries?

Welcome, @kat634e. I love questions that introduce features of macOS I didn’t even know existed! In terms of helping you with your issue, though, I am puzzled as well. As you can see from the screen shot below, I have lots of options to choose from in the Word of the Day screensaver. I assume from your question that you do not. If you go to System Preferences > Language & Region, and click the little " + " symbol in the lower-left corner of the “Preferred languages” box, what language options do you see there? I’m trying to figure out whether you simply have only English and Asian languages installed, for some reason.
