Hi,

I am not particularly pleased with the built-in spell-check module Hunspell. It's just very very limited, and I have very large files to spell check. Don't want to lose my time clicking Ignore or Add (to custom dictionary) every time the program finds a standard word that is not in the HunSpell word list.

Anybody out there that knows how to solve this nuisance?

Upgrade to Studio 2011 Jun 17, 2012

In Studio 2011 you can choose between Hunspell and MS Word Spell Checker. If you select the second, you can use the same customised dictionary that you use in Word. Any words you add from Word or Studio will be entered in the same dictionary.

There are many issues with the current version of SDL Trados Studio 2011 as reported by numerous people that upgraded lately. And one of these reported issues is that using the MSWord Spell Checker simply doesn't work.

Spelling woes Oct 1, 2012

Exactly, MS Word speller simply doesn't work, and the built-in Hunspell speller flags most Arabic words as errors, making using it pointless.

If you are using... Oct 1, 2012

...Studio 2011 and the spell checker won't work then please log a case for this using the Solution Finder. I'm not aware of any problems that relate to the spell checker not working?

You haven't provided much information to go on.. so use this route. Go to the Knowledgebase;

http://kb.sdl.com

Then go to the tab called Solution Finder and now go here;

Download & Installation Problems
- The installation went fine, but now I get an error message when opening or using the program.
-- The error occurs in SDL Trados Studio 2011

... or just tell us what the problem is and maybe we can help?

Regards

Paul
