Yes, this is an app-wide setting.

Well, I believe there's no 'official' way to do it but one can do it  
by using my TMTools plugin. Look at


and the at help file

3.2.23 spellCheckerLanguage '{to=XXX;}'

Important Note:

The TMTOOLS plug-in calls undocumented TextMate functions without an  
appropriate API. It is strongly recommend to use that plug-in for  
private scripting only!

      The usage of that plug-in is at your own risk!
