Spellcheck

Memsource offers an embedded spellchecker for most of the major languages available in Memsource (marked in the language table above). 

For languages that we do not support directly, we recommended using the spellchecker in an external application that supports DOCX files such as Microsoft Word, Open Office Writer, or Livre Office's Write. See more details in our dedicated Spellchecker article.
