the way I would do it Jun 11, 2008

export, copy to word the part containing phrases, convert to table (remember that ^p is end of paragraph), spell-check one column, convert table to text with #separator, convert # to complete TM tags (remember that ^p is end of paragraph), copy to a txt export file, import

How I spell check TM Jun 11, 2008

i) export it as TXT
ii) use PlusToyz to create a two-column Word file
iii) spell-check the target column
iv) use PlusrToyz to create TXT again
v) import

iii) is the moment where other things can be done, like correcting the fonts, throwing out extra spaces etc. The other suggestions are pretty much equivalent, except they involve what PlusToyz has been doing for all of us for years.

Kudos again to Arkadij Vysotsky for PlusToyz.

The alternative is to export the source (!), translate it, spellcheck it, import it.
