About the Microsoft Word Spell Checker

You can choose to use Microsoft Word as a spell checker in SDL Trados Studio. The spell checker can only be used if Word is installed.

If your translated text for these languages contains any single-byte words (English words), those words will also not be spell checked in Studio.


The other languages supported by the Word spell checker will vary depending on your Word setup. Refer to the Word Help for more details.
