My project has hundreds of xliff files with a small amount of text in each one. Is there a way to spell check the entire project, rather than each file individually? Thank you.

Create a view Sep 12, 2016

If your project is local (not a memoQ server-based project) I think I would create a View with all the files, and then run the spellchecker.

To create a view, in the Translations pane (the list of files), select all files, choose Create view in the Documents ribbon, assign the view a name and use the option "Simply glue documents together". This creates a view you can open and process as a single file.

When you are finished, you can simply delete the view. The files are updated whenever you make a change in the view. Please remember that, if you have Propagation enabled, it will affect all files in the view (anything that is repeated in the view will be propagated).

Does this help?
