How to Enable and Configure Spelling Check in Xliff Editor

Xliff Editor can be configured to underline mistakes like Word

From the recent posts in this blog, we know how to enable spelling check with Microsoft Word spelling engine in the following programs:

Now we turn to Xliff Editor. This CAT is a part of Translation Workspace system, and it works with usual “offline” files by connecting to online  resources (translation memory, termbases etc.). The standard file extension of Xliff Editor file is .xlz.

By default, spelling check “on the go” is not enabled in Xliff Editor. To enable and adjust it, please do the following:

In Xliff Editor, select Tools > Spelling Check Configuration...

xliff_editorspelling_settings_menu

Spell Check Configuration dialog window opens. There, select the check box Use MS Word Spell Checker check box. Then, choose the language in the Language list. If you want to underline incorrectly written words immediately after they are typed, set the Check Spelling As You Type check box.

After that, restart Xliff Editor. All erroneous words are now underlined with red lines, like in Word.
