Dear all,

The MS Word Grammar Checker seemed to be a great plug-in to enhance my translations without having to review the files directly in Word. I installed the plug-in and verified a file to test the functionality. There were some errors found, saying "The target segment contains a grammar error". But when I click on one of the messages, it says in the error details "No more errors found in this segment" for every single message and the errors are not marked anywhere, so I can't see what the grammar errors are. What do I do wrong? My active spell checker is MS Word Spell Checker and I use Office 365 and Word 2016.

I really hope someone has a solution.

Best regards,

Laura Schevers

False positive, most probably Feb 10, 2017

Many similar programs create false positives, so most probably this is your case.

I wouldn't be too worriedicon_smile.gif

This is the case with all grammar errors Feb 10, 2017

I hope that was the case, but unfortunately, it isn't. All grammar errors are displayed like this, so I guess there is something wrong, but I can't figure out what it is...

Language problem? Feb 10, 2017

I would suggest checking if the correct language is indicated.

Where can I check the language? Feb 10, 2017

That could be it, but: where can I check if the correct language is indicated for this plugin?

I don't use this plugin, but there should be definitely some info for it - a readme file or whatever.
