getting back to the suggestion to move spell checking options to project settings, I think it would be easier to implement if the option stays where it is but that we get an option to add languages per spell checker.
- If language not specified: use default spell checker (for this we would need to be able to define whether Microsoft Word or Hunspell is default spell checker)
- add languages per spell checker:
-- MS Word: DE-DE, FR-FR, EN-UK
-- Hunspell: LB-LU, DE-AT
So in fact, we would need a field, where we can add the various languages. This could be within the options of the specific spell checker. (Editor > Spell checking > Active Spell checker).
If you select MS Word spell checker, then you get the options we already know and below Ignore Segment types, you can add a Field called Languages. Here you add the languages you want.
Same goes for Hunspell.
If you now open files for translation/review in a project, Trados checks the selected target language and if it’s DE-DE (for this example), then MS Word is applied. If it’s LB-LU then it’s checked against Hunspell, aso.
