Spell Check Ignore List in WFP

From Wordfast Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

During the Spell Check process in Wordfast Pro, you have the option Add to Dictionary to tell the checker to ignore a word and not to consider it a spelling mistake.

Q. I have realized that I must accidentally have clicked on "Add to Dictionary" when doing a spell-check at some point, because "eduction" is accepted as a valid spelling. How can I get into the dictionary to remove this, so that this misspelling will be flagged going forward?

A. Now, "eduction" has been added to the spelling check "ignore list" and you would like to delete it. You should find the ignore list at some path like:


In this folder, there is a file whose name is the language locale and whose extension is *.personal (e.g. "en_US.personal"). Open it in NotePad, delete the wrong word, and save.
