First of all my apologies,

this is not in French (you may have noticed).

But I do need the input of French translators.

My question: Do any French spelling checkers exists besides Microsofts own?

What I am looking for is along the lines of \"Van Dale\" (Dutch) which explains the different congugations of verbs and is a whole lot better then the standard Dutch spelling checker.

Recommended products Dec 28, 2002

As a developer of language technology, here are the products I can reasonably recommend for overall quality:

- Cordial (Synapse)

- Antidote (Druide informatique)

- Correcteur 101 (Documens formerly Machina Sapiens)

Cordial is the best but is also the one found in the current versions of Word. Check before you buy.

The long-term future for Correcteur 101 seems bleak because the R&D team has just been dissolved.

I really like Antidote :-) Dec 28, 2002

John has given you some very good information... I personally use Antidote and I really like it a lot.

You can customize it, it is not just a spell checker - here is their website:

P.s. I wish you all a very happy New Year!

(Je vous souhaite tous une bonne et nouvelle année!)
