I am having trouble with SDL edit and spell checking in French. It gives me the option to spell check but it does not allow me to choose any language. I am not sure if it is because I have vista or if it is because I am not using the software right.
any advice?

it should be automatic Jan 5, 2008

Hi Claire,

I am not sure I understand: does the sell check work? Since your files in SDL Edit all have a source language and a target language defined, the spell checker will automatically be set on the right language, so you normally don't have to set anything.
