I do not know what is happening... It was all fine until several translations ago... It just stopped showing spelling errors while typing and with each translation unit it would "forget" the language I have ordered it to use.

Maybe the best to explain what I do...

When I open a new document and start working using Trados, I usually select the whole text and chose the language I want it for spell-checking (along the way).

What is happening now is the following: I would chose the language and start working, but as I press CTRL+ to close current and move to the next, it "forgets" the change I made with the language formatting...

I wonder if there is something I did wrong or... I guess it is something rather simple (as usual with my questions), but me not knowing the “simple thing” just makes it big!

Thank you for your help!

I dont spellcheck while translating... Jul 23, 2006

I know it's no help for the problem, but I dont spellcheck until the whole text is finished. Then I do the whole file in one sweep and the update the TM using pretranslate.
