Hi,
Perhaps you could help me solve the issue.
I have a 64-Bit Windows 7 installed and am using the new Office 2010. The thing is the spell check feature is not working in any CAT tools. It simply feels like there was no Office suite installed at all!
Have any of you experienced similar issues? Any ideas how to solve this one?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Best regards,
JM

I'm afraid neither of these tools is compatible with Office 2010 Sep 6, 2010

Office 2010 was released after the tools you mentioned and thus will most certainly not be recognized by those.
Install a compatible version of Office such like Office 2007 to avoid the problem.

Back to Office 2007 then... Sep 6, 2010

Thanks for the reply. Not much is left to do. Back to Office 2007 then. Well, perhaps we can only hope that Microsoft will somehow fix the issue, but I don't think it will be soon.
Well, life...

Thank you once more!

Does the spell-check work in Word? Sep 6, 2010

I bought a new laptop exactly on the day when Office 2010 was released and could not buy 2007 any more - the laptop came with Office 2010. I bought and installed the language pack, however the spell-check did not work even in Word, let alone Trados. I got in touch with Microsoft and they admitted that until they issue special language packs for Office 2010, there was not much I could do. They did downgrade me to 2007 though without any extra charge. Somehow I do not think I will be using my original licence any time soon.

Good luck,
Ines

same problem Sep 6, 2010

I'm using word and translated, and the spell check keeps telling me that the document has been checked. I've changed all the preferences, the language is set and it still doesn't work.
I have word 2007 windows vista...
it's driving me nuts!!!

Word 2010 in Greek Sep 7, 2010

Hi,
I bought it as well and realized afterwards that there is no spell-checker at all for Greek and they do not even know when the LIP will be released...
Anyhow, although it is useless in , SDLX, Tag Editor etc. the Greek spell checker still works on SDL Trados Suite 2009... although it is not installed on the PC...
Best regards,
Irene
