Does anyone know where I can find an English medical spell corrector for MS-Word? I just need something that can easily verify my spellings for a lot of medical terms within Word.

Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure that such a thing exists. Jun 2, 2006

It would indeed be very helpful! I do a lot of medical translation, and the way I approach it is to use the 'add to dictionary' function for new terms when I do a spellcheck. It won't help you immediately, but may be useful in the long term.

It's not quite what you asked but... Jun 2, 2006

... could I suggest that you stick all your medical terms into a custom dictionary under Word? This solution assumes, of course, that you already have a list of them, otherwise it will either be a lot of typing for you, or something that gradually builds up over the course of time as you add terms to it.

I'm doing that Jun 2, 2006

It is the best solution I have so far. It sure would be nice to have one that is already made.

Does anyone have a custom dictionary for medical terms that can be incorporated into Word?

Stedman's Jun 2, 2006

Hi Edward

Stedman's has a med spellchecker that works in Word, in my case it's USA EN which has - as it happens - deactivated my UK EN spellchecker, I don't know why.

I was given mine on CD ROM, so I don't know where you can get it...but at least you know there is one and that it works in Word.

Ailish:-)

medical spellcheck Jun 2, 2006

I have been using medical spell checkers for many years. There are currently two on the market.

The one I prefer is Stedman's medical/pharmaceutical. You can obtain it from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. URL is www.Stedmans.com. Phone number is 1-800-638-3030. The latest version came out in October 2005 on CD Rom, but it can also be downloaded.

Stedman's spellchecker works with Word.
