There are two kinds of spellchecking in memoQ:
Hunspell and Word.
Generally, soellchecking with Hunspell is faster, but needs a bit of training to be house-broken.
Spellchecking with Word takes a bit longer, but the big advantage is, that you probably already spent time traning it, as you probably have been using Word already for a while on your computer.


How to set spellchecking

Go to Options (1) -> Spellchecking and grammar (2).

Pick language (4), and pick Hunspell or Word as option.

If you pick Hunspell:

Pick Hunspell (1) for Spell checking dialogue (hidden in this picture) and click Look for new dictionaries online (2).
Spellchecking packages available for the language you picked will be downloaded, and the dialogue closes. Click OK.
Now the Hunspell spellcheck is available during translating.
