If the source text contains a number spelled out (i.e., five), and there’s a mistake in the target (i.e. trois), would a linguistic tool program catch it?

Unless used glossaries contain number pairs, and the tool setting is set to flag inconsistencies between glossaries and target text.

If you want this feature, then just put the spelled out numbers into a general glossary and it will pick out any errors with your final quality check. However, if you are not picking them up yourself, you might think about honing your proofreading skills.
