Hi,

I followed the guide and 'updated' WF 4 to get all the new dictionaries. This completed but the Australian English dictionary still doesn't work (it's asking me to correct colour to "color" or favourite to "favorite"!!).

Does anyone have any suggestions? It'd be perfect if the MS Office Dictionary worked for Mac!

Thanks,

DJH

Under [Wordfast 4 tab > Preferences > Spellchecker], you can set the spellchecker to "Microsoft Office" (instead of Hunspell). I'm not sure if you will then be able to pick Australian English, but it might be worth a try.

Thanks Jan, Hunspell does work for Australian English in WF3 but not in WF4.

The instructions I referred to are here (https://www.wordfast.net/wiki/MS_Word_Spellchecker_in_Wordfast_Pro_4 ) and state:

"If you are running Wordfast Pro 4 on a PC only, you can use Microsoft Word’s spellchecker instead (granted you have MS Word installed on your PC)."
