How to Enable and Configure Spelling Check in memoQ

memoQ is able to check spelling using Word spelling engine

A week time ago we discussed how to enable and configure spelling check in Word. This time we will make the similar adjustments in memoQ.

memoQ allows to check spelling with open source Hunspell dictionaries or with Microsoft Word engine (that is why we started the series of posts about spelling from Word).

To configure spelling check in memoQ, please select:
memoQ > Options > Options > Spelling and grammar (on the left pane).

To enable spelling check, please select the Check spelling as you type check box.
