Hi everyone,

I have encountered yet another issue with Trados. While doing the spell check, it sometimes happens that part of a word is marked as an 'error', even though it is only a part of the word in the target text. For example: Middle rail. In this case the spell checker would say that 'Mid' is an error, while there is clearly written 'Middle', and not 'Mid'. Does anyone have experience with this issue?

Many thanks!

Sometimes half or whole segments are marked Feb 12, 2016

I am not sure I have quite the same problem as you, but you may find this helpful.

Marking odd things as spelling mistakes for no apparent reason seems to be an occasional bug with Studio.

I find it occurs most often when I copy the source segment, especially if it includes some name that the spell checker does not recognise. That is often the reason why I copy the segment, to save me typing it!

Everything in the source language is marked as an error, but as I delete it, the translation is sometimes marked as incorrectly spelled too.

The only workaround I know is to highlight the whole of the translated text, and hit CTRL+X to remove it, then Ctrl+V to reinsert it.

After that only unrecognised names are marked (and genuine spelling mistakes, if any).

________________

If only a single word is marked, it sometimes helps, but not always, to insert a space immediately after it. Of course, you have to delete the space again if it is superfluous.

This is a known issue Feb 14, 2016

Hi

Yes, this is a known issue. Unfortunately difficult to fix because it is not reproducible and does not happen frequently.

The best workaround is to copy the entire content of the segment, click ALT-DEL and CTRL-V to put it back and the error will be gone.
It is probably related to some invisible tags that cut a word in two parts.
SDL is aware of this and we all hope there will be a fix one day (keep fingers crossed:-)).

It's a lot more common than you think Walter... Feb 18, 2016

Don't know where you get the idea that it doesn't happen frequently from, it happens all the time (in my case say twice or three times on a 1000 word text). It's been mentioned on a number of threads and still nothing has been done.

If it was some freeware app I could understand it, but it strikes me as poor that an expensive programme from a large company cany put it right
