I work with MS Word 2010 (Germany) and would like some tips regarding the spellchecker.
(1) Is it possible to reliably check UK spelling with MS Word? Both Oxford and -ise Spelling are accepted when checking with "English (UK)". Is there a good solution to this problem = way to specifically select one or the other? (Please note: I am not interested in using OpenOffice, if that is necessary for Hunspell and Myspell.)
(2) It is easy to add words to the dictionary list, but I cannot find a way to remove words from the main dictionary. There are directions for blacklisting words, but they don't seem to work... I would like to be able to remove words from the MS Word list whenever I recognize that they do not correspond to my paper dictionaries and also to be able to have certain typographical features marked as errors (double quotation marks, em-dashes etc. marked as incorrect when working in enGB and vice versa).
I am willing to invest a fair amount of time in the project in the interest of having a really first-rate and style-true series of dictionaries at some point in the next few years.
- Is it possible to open the MS Word main dictionary file?
- And what about other commercial products like Oxford spellchecker? As far as I know, this product got ripped apart just as much as its Duden counterpart as incredibly slow, hard to use, and not even very accurate.
