CategorySegment Edit Helper


Check and handle Spell-, Grammar- and Style-Errors while editing a segment in translate5.

Bootstrap Class

TypeCore plug-in (delivered with translate5 core)


Based on LanguageTool, errors that are detected include: wrong spelling, wrong grammer, misfitting quotation marks, inaccurate date-specifiations, word-repititions, ...

The errors are marked in different colors according to the kind of error.

With a right mouse-click you can access more information about the error and suggestions for replacements. If you click on a suggestion, the suggested phrase instantly replaces the marked error in the segment.

The SpellCheck runs only when you stop typing or when evoked manually; this ensures that performance and speed while editing are not impaired.

  • Default:
    • SpellCheck is started when typing has stopped (or by F7).
    • Typing while the SpellCheck runs stops the currently running SpellCheck.
  • East asian languages (ja, ko, zh; incl. ja-JP etc):
    • SpellCheck is started by Button (or by F7).
    • While the SpellCheck is running, typing is not possible.
