Options - Spelling and grammar

To use spell checking in memoQ, you need to set up the spell checker for each target language you work with. You can do this on the Spelling and grammar pane of the Options window.

If Microsoft Word is there on your computer, memoQ can use Word's spell checkers. If Word is not on the computer, or it does not have a spell checker for the language you need, you can set up Hunspell for that language.

If Microsoft Word is on your computer, and it supports grammar checking for your target language, memoQ can also check the grammar of your translation.

Microsoft Word is using its own options in memoQ. To change the way Word checks spelling, open the Options window in Microsoft Word, click the Proofing category, and change those settings as needed.

How to get here

  1. Open the Options window: At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar quick-access-default -, click the Options (cogwheels) quick-access-options icon. The Options window opens.
  2. Under Category, click Spelling and grammar. The Spelling and grammar pane appears.


What can you do?

You can turn off continuous spell checking: Normally, memoQ keeps checking your text as you type, and underline any unrecognized words. You can turn this off: On the Spelling tab, clear the Check spelling as you type check box.

When you finish
