Memsource Editors have an integrated spellchecker that supports many languages. See a detailed list of all Memsource languages and the Spellcheker availability.
The spellchecker only supports spelling checks, not grammar checks.
The Memsource Editor for desktop must be online (a user must sign in) in order to get the Spellcheck service.
The spellchecker is launched by the F7 key or from the Tools menu. It will list all spelling errors in the QA pane. After correcting the misspelled word and confirming the segment, the user will be taken to the next segment with the misspelled words.
A curly red line underlines the misspelled words.
Right-clicking on a misspelled word will display a list of alternative spellings.
Add to Dictionary
Clicking on the red arrow icon under the misspelled word will allow a user to add the word to the user's dictionary. (It will soon be possible to edit a user's dictionary.)
Ignore QA warning
When you run a Quality Assurance check (see QA pane in Memsource Editor), you can ignore a word without adding it to the dictionary, by clicking in the "i" section in the QA pane. Doing this will show the misspelled word as "ignored" under QA but the word itself will remain underlined in the target segment.
MS Word Spellchecker
Any translation job can also be spellchecked in an external application that supports DOCX files, such as MS Word or Open Office Writer:
- Go to a Memsource Cloud project with the translation job you plan to spellcheck. Select the job and click on Download - Bilingual DOCX
- Open the bilingual DOCX file in e.g. MS Word, run the spellcheck and do not forget to save the file afterward
- Return to your Memsource Cloud project and click on Tools - Upload to upload the spellchecked bilingual MS Word file
- After the upload, open your job in Memsource Web Editor and confirm all not confirmed segments (e.g. by using the filter function)
