Does anyone know if there is an auto-correct function in Studio 2011, where misspelled words are automatically corrected as you type, similar to the functionality in Word?

no Nov 10, 2012

No, I don't think there is.

There are the Auto-Text and Auto-Substitution features, but they are something different.

Actually I'm quite happy this feature is missing.
In Word etc. it is quicker to "auto-correct" difficult words than to learn their correct spelling.

In Studio it is more efficient to learn the correct spellingicon_smile.gif

Learning, OK, but what about efficiency? May 30, 2013

I am presently discovering Trados (2011 version), and I am very disappointed in the lack of auto-correct. The thing is, I use it extensively in Word for two things:

1) Not having to use impractical keyboard shortcuts to type characters like "œ" in "œuf", "bœuf" or "œuvre" ("chef-d'œuvre", "main-d'œuvre", etc.). I translate into French, of course.

2) Replacing long sequences of words; for instance, when I have to type a name like "ministère des Affaires étrangères et du Commerce international", I only type "maffci", and voilà!

I know about the Auto-Suggest feature, but since I just started using Trados, my database is not big enough to set that up. They say it should take about 6 months before I have enough segments for that. So, in the meantime, a simple manually set auto-correct would be great... and the lack of it is very annoying.

AutoCorrect for Studio May 31, 2013

HI,

This does come up from time to time, so I thought I'd share how to use AutoHotkey to achieve a similar affect and then have this capability for every application you work in : http://wp.me/p2xDjK-oR

It obviously lacks the ability to automatically add new misspellings but perhaps it's a good starting point.

Regards

Paul

Any update Oct 25, 2014

Dear SDL Support

As your new version also has come, is there any update regarding Auto Correct which is provided by SDL App Store.



Thanks

Hi,

There is no AutoCorrect in Studio 2014 either. But the aforementioned AutoHotkey solution does still work and you have the added advantage of being able to use this solution in any application you like.

Regards

Paul

problem with unicode Oct 26, 2014

Basically I work with Hindi Language pair.

It seems AHK doesn't support Unicode as in terms of INPUT,

i.e. ::1::12345 (here 1 is input and 12345 is output)

here if character/word placed between Colons [ ::1:: ] is an English character/word, then it gets activated

If if character/word placed between Colons [ ::1:: ] is an Unicode/Hindi character/word, then it doesn't get activated

I am using v1.1.16.05 -64 Bit (released on September 28, 2014)

Any suggestion?

Without auto-correct, SDL2014 is very inefficient for me Jan 14, 2015

I use MSWord auto-correct heavily. I translate a lot of patents. The same words are repeated endlessly, so by saving them in auto-correct, I maintain consistency while gaining speed.

SDL2014 is so over-engineered, it's much slower and more cumbersome to use that good old TagEditor or WorkBench.
I'm very disappointed in this CAT tool. I dislike it very much.

I'm definitely not purchasing any new products from them. I'll move on to something that does not slow me down or force me to work as though I were working in a big Japanese company on massive volumes of programming manuals. It's just me.

More ways to skin a cat Oct 9, 2015

Studio 2015 supports AutoCorrect, but there are other, easier ways to have AutoCorrect in all Windows programs as well as earlier versions of Studio:
