Spell check in TagEditor 6.5

Has Trados fixed the spellchecker for the TagEditor or have they still not fixed this after all those years complaining by everyone?

I checked it on and there seems to be no solution other than copying/pasting it into Word. Rather a lousy solution I'd say.

Perhaps I should export the TM and run it through SDLX. But then I will need to export it back to Trados as the client insists on Trados.

Pretty cumbersome whichever way you look at it. Give the amount of money Trados requests for a license you'd have thought this would have been fixed long ago........... Can't be that difficult to program!

Anyone any constructive comments????

Checking spelling of target text or TMs? Oct 16, 2005

Since I have been using more and more of Transit but cannot eliminate Trados completely, I unify my TMs with the aid of TMX editor from Heartsome.

Ther are some problems caused by bugs of both Trados and Transit, but it is the best TM processing tool I have found.

TagEditor 7 does it right Oct 17, 2005

I hate to suggest this, but TagEditor 7, when linked to the Word spellcheck function, did it right, for both English and Hebrew (source/target).

I haven't any experience with v.6.5, so I can't comment on how it compares with this version. Perhaps this linking with Word is a new feature?

Spell check link to Word Oct 18, 2005

Can the suggestion of Spell checking to Word be explained here for TagEditor?
I agree with the former comment of Trados being of very poor quality for spell checking.
