Hi folks -
My client sent me 3 TMs in tmx format and asked me to proofread and spellcheck them according to the new Portuguese ortography. I'm working with SDL Trados Studio 2011, managed to import the TMX tm's into Studio, but proofreading it manually would be very time-consuming - and I really need to run them against MSWord spellcheck to see if there are any errors from the old ortography.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Many thanks in advance

You can convert TMs to sdlxliff using SDLTmConvert:

Then you can open the sdlxliff in Studio and spellcheck it using the Word spellchecker.
It's free for up to 50,000 TUs.
