Hi all,

I have created an Excel file with in the first column a lot of often made errors in my native language and a second column with the correction.

I would like to find a way to check and see if one or more of the 'often made errors' occurs in my translation (albeit in Word, TTX or whatever format). So basically, check whether one or more of the terms or phrases in the first column of my Excel file occur in my translated text.

Does anyone have any idea whether this is possible and how this can be done?

Thanks!

In WF, this is called a blacklist, and you can perform a blacklist check on a file after the translation is done (or during the translation, segment by segment).
