Hello everybody..
I am having problems with TagEditor (5.5).
I cannot activate the spell checker in the target language doc (ttx). I try to place the pointer in the beginning of a phrase to start checking, but the pointer doesn´t appear.. i have to open the segment and then it is available in the main toolbar, but when i activate an error message appears: "The spell checker does not support the current target language".
Does someone know what is the problem here? I guess there must be a little thing that i can´t see.

Thanks a lot in advance.
Ale

Similar problem May 22, 2006

I also have a similar problem and thought I would post it here instead of opening a new thread.
I am doing a proofing job in TagEditor and the spell check option is greyed out - can anyone explain why this might be? This happens regardless of whether Workbench is running or not.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

Regards,

Federica

I solved my problem... May 22, 2006

It was really simple, this is how to do it:

Go to Tools - Plug-ins and check if the "Spelling Checker" plug-in is activated.

Ale, I hope someone will come up with a solution to your problem!!

Best,

Federica

Spell checker is a plug-in for TagEditor May 22, 2006

that needs to be activated: you do that in Tools/PlugIns in 7.0

Second, if one is using Word spell checker, it needs to have the target language installed - this is not as self-evident as it might seem.

That would be the first two checks on the problems mentioned above.

Hello Vito, my TagEditor version is 5.5, and the plug-ins are activated. The spell checker is activated, what happens is that cannot support the target language as it says... but Spanish is one of the basic languages Trados and TagEditor supports so.. do you know if there´s an option to check my target languages setting for spell checker somewhere? It seems the program doesn´t recognize the Spanish language.. and in the Workbench languages are ok, so.. i don´t know..

I am working with 7.0 version TagEditor May 23, 2006

so I can't be of any help (more like a possible source of confusion) when it comes to earlier versions.

btw, 5.5 smacks of pre-2003 office, which is the other can of worms.

Sorry, pal...

[EDIT]hint: make some foobar TM to translate from Spanish to English and check if English spell-checker kicks in. If it works, then it is the spanish side of the spell checker that does not respond.

One point more: Could it be that you have a variant of SP indicated in TM (like SP-AR or whatever) instead of the generic SP (Castillan)? Am grasping for straws here...

everything has been checked... May 23, 2006

Thanks Vito for your efforts in trying to help me.. i really appreciate that.
Well, i have checked in the TM that Spanish is Modern Sort as i always have used.. not Castillian.. i did my translation with Modern Sort Spanish so.. i don´t know.
What can i do if the Spanish part of the spell checker doesn´t work? Everything is getting more difficult i see...

Kind regards,
Ale
