I am trying to do a spellchek of my translation, but it seems I have no dictionaries installed, nor does the program detect the MS word dictionary.

How can I solve this? Is there no internal dictionary on Catalyst 10?

Thanks
Paula

Proofing Tools May 26, 2014

Hi Paula,

Do you have the 32bit or 64bit version of Catalyst installed?

Under Tools > Options > Spell Check, when you select Internal Dictionaries do you get a list of languages? Do you get an error message when selecting Microsoft Word Dictionaries? Do you have the proofing tools for your languages installed? Are you able to perform a spell check in Microsoft Word?

Thanks and regards,
Jette

64 bit Jun 2, 2014

Dear Jette,

Thanks for your reply.

I have a 64 bit version of Catalyst.
When I go to tools > Options > Spell Check, there are no dictionaries to select.

And yes, I can perform a spellcheck in word.

Target Language specifies dictionary Jun 4, 2014

Hi Paula,

You cannot select languages in the dictionary list as the target language specifies which dictionary to use.
If you want to use the Spanish dictionary for example, you need to make sure that your target language has been set to Spanish.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and regards,
Jette

Tried this Jun 12, 2014

Dear Jette,

I tried this but it did not work.
I selected multiple combinations of source and target language, for Spanish variations, but still the dictionaries are not available for me to select any of them.

Are there any Catalyst dictionaries that I could use?

Regards,
Paula

Dictionaries Jun 13, 2014

Hi Paula,

I am not sure I understand this correctly.

You select your target language as Spanish and your dictionary is set to Microsoft Word Dictionaries? The Spanish language is listed in the language list for available dictionaries?

Once you set your target language to Spanish, could you perform a Spell Check?

You only need to set your dictionary to either Microsoft Word Dictionaries or Internal Dictionaries, there is no need to click on the language lists (you are not able to pick a language there). Once you have set your dictionary technology, make sure your target language is set to eh language you want to spell check in and then perform a spell check.

Do you get an error message when you try to perform a Spell Check?

Thanks,
Jette

Dear Jette,
Right now I am completely lost.

Is there any key shortcut to do spellcheck (like F7 in Word) or a button?

I can not find it, so maybe my problem is that I am not doing it correctly.

Disregard previous message Jun 13, 2014

I just found the button.

Now the problem is that I do get a message saying:

"No dictionary selected. Please set your dictionary in the Tools - Options dialog"

I did select Microsoft dictionaries, but still the same problem.

Spanish listed Jun 13, 2014

Hi PAula,

Is Spanish listed under the language lists when you select the Microsoft Dictionaries?

Does the Spell Check work if you use the Internal Dictionary?

Thanks,
Jette

Hi Jun 13, 2014

There are no dictionaries under "Internal Dictionaries" and no spellcheck works when selected.

There is Spanish in the Microsoft Dictionaries.

32bit or 64bit Jun 13, 2014

Hi Paula,

Are you using the 32bit or 64bit version of Catalyst?

If you do not see any languages for the internal dictionaries there seems to be an issue with your installation.

You might have to reinstall Catalyst.

Please remove Catalyst 10 via Control panel > Add or Remove programs, please reboot your machine after.

After that please install Catalyst by right click on the setup.exe and choosing run as administrator.
Could you then launch Catalyst 10 by right clicking on the Catalyst.exe as well and choose run as administrator?

Could you then check if you see dictionaries under Internal Dictionaries and Microsoft Word Dictionaries?

Thanks,
Jette

Unzip as administrator Mar 14, 2015

Note if you run SpellCheck.exe without administrator rights the files wont be copied to SpellData folder in Catalyst folder. However no warning message will be displayed.

I have the same problem Mar 14, 2015

I just installed CATALYST 11: Translator/Lite - 64bit, applied the licence file and unziped SpellCheck.exe as administrator. I rebooted and checked the SpellCheck files and they are there. Then I tried running catalyst.exe as administrator. The source and target languages are English (United States) - Portuguese (Brazil). I do have Microsoft ProofingTools installed and working.

At 'File > Options > PowerTranslate > SpellCheck' in 'Dictionary' drop-down box there are only 'No Dictionary' and 'Microsoft Word Dictionaries' options.
When 'Microsoft Word Dictionaries' is selected, there are only French, Portuguese and Spanish options in 'Languages available'. However they cannot be selected.

I had the same problem even when I used Catalyst 9 and 10.

Project Languages in Options Mar 14, 2015

I noticed that even though project languages are defined in HOME tab >> Languages, it doesn't affect languages at Options >> Application >> Project Languages.
