    Is there any way to make the input method switch automatically on different programs?
    For example, it is default english in word, and it is default chinese in excel? So that we do not need to switch.
    Any advice will be high appricated. Thanks!

    Simple answer is no.

    You are better off programming keyboard shortcuts for different language inputs. With a bit work you might be able to tweak them and assign keyboard inputs based on application.

    Having that for conditional content within an app would be tricky. Also you could set different user accounts and switch between them for types of work.
