Check configuration Jul 2, 2004

Thanks, Valentina,



The version is 6.0.0.309 build 309

IIRC there was a patch for this version (upgrading to build 310).


I installed the plug-in from tag editor - plug-in word spelling checker.

Ok, I get it - you activated it in TagEditor, right? I was confused as to why you would want to install something...

Did you configure the Word spell checker?
Here's the relevant section from the Help file:


If you are using the Microsoft Word Spelling Checker in TagEditor, you will need to configure the spelling checker options from within Microsoft Word. To configure the spelling checker:

1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Spelling & Grammar tab.

2. In the Spelling group box, choose the options that you want for the spelling checker:

· Select the Check Spelling as you type check box for automatic correction of misspellings as you type.

· Select Hide spelling errors in this document if you do not want spelling errors to be highlighted by a wavy red line underneath the word.

· Select Always suggest corrections to have Microsoft Word suggest corrections to misspellings.

· Select Suggest from main dictionary only if you do not want Word to suggest spellings from any open Custom dictionaries.

· Select Ignore words in uppercase to skip words containing uppercase characters only, for example, acronyms.

· Select Ignore words with numbers to skip words with one or several numbers, for example, Win95 or Q4.

· Select Ignore Internet and file addresses if you do not want Word to check Internet addresses, file names or email addresses.

HTH, Ralf

It does not help! Aug 1, 2004

I have found this thread becouse I cannot manage to use Spelling check on TagEditor 6.0 (309).

The problems where two:

1. Winter Three Spelling Checker does not recognize some typos in Italian (namely it made me deliver the first part of a very important paid test with the typos "nell" and "led" - not present in personal dictionaries).
2. Once I replace Winter Tree Plug-In with Word Spelling checker TagEditor CRASHES as soon as it finds a spelling error.

After reading this thread I have downloaded the last cumulative Patch for 6.0 (309)->(310), then checked all the setting in Word (Trados wording is not very clear: am I forced to select all those options in Word in order to use the Spelling check in TagEditor? - To be safe I did).

RESULT: TagEditor keeps CRASHING!! Before the patch, the persisting warning was "Error in MFC32DLL" now it is "Eroor in KERNEL32DLL". If I click on Close the warning appears again. I am FORCED TO STOP the computer -- which does not work well: when I restart Scandisk starts automatically.

I wrote to Trados assistance. Their reaction is slow. In the mean time I can forget my hope for the internal job I was applying for, as I cannot deliver the second part of my test in time - 4000 no match for Monday!

I remember I had the same problem years ago with Trados 5. That time I could wait for Trados assistance. I would never have expected that the problem would repeat after upgrading to version 6. (By the way, also TagEditor 5 crashes now!).
