Spelling & Grammar Check


Check grammar

Detects: Sentences with incorrect grammatical structure according to Microsoft® Word.

Check spelling

Detects: Misspelled words. More exactly, it detects all words not included into dictionaries you use, and you have several options for this.

Checking tools:

  • Use Microsoft® Word for spell check: Select this option to use MS Word engine in spellcheck.
  • Use Hunspell dictionaries: Select this option to use Hunspell dictionaries in spellcheck.


  • Suggest replacements: Deselect this option to avoid generating spelling suggestions. Normally this shortens the overall checking time.
  • Ignore words with numbers: Select this option if you do not want to check spelling in words containing numbers.
  • Ignore words in UPPERCASE: Select this option if you do not want to check spelling in words types in upper case.
  • Ignore words in UPPERCASE only if the same word can be found in source: Uppercased words will be ignored only if this word appears both in source and target text.
  • Ignore words in MiXeD case: Select this option if you do not want to check spelling in words typed using a mixture of cases.
  • Ignore words from the list of untranslatables: Select this option to avoid reporting words that are found in your list of untranslatables.
  • Ignore target words found in source: Select this option to avoid reporting words that are found in source text.
  • Do not check one-letter words: Select this option if you do not want to check the spelling of words that consist of one letter.

NB! Please note that if you use MS Word spell check and do not select options that are also present in MS Word spelling settings (Ignore words that contain numbers etc.), then settings made in MS Word will be active (i.e. if Ignore words that contain numbers is still check in MS Word, it will be active when checking files in Verifika).
Auto-correction: Yes, if the dictionary suggests a correct word for replacement.
