Hello everybody,

I have a file with a lot of product names and trademarks that are left in English. Spellcheck considers them misspelled. I am wondering if it is possible to make WF4 spellcheck ignore English words in the target segments. I could do it in WF3 by choosing Hunspell, but that doesn't help in Wordfast 4.

Thanks in advance!

The software does not know by itself whether e.g. the words 'Word' or 'British Airways' (with capitals) should be translated or not. I'd enter all product names, trademarks etc. in the translation memory on the 'source = target' basis. IMO that's the simplest way.
