Grammar Check

As the tittle says, would it be possible to implement a grammar checking through, e.g., language tools?

Yesterday I noticed that LanguageTools is available for Dutch too. Hence, I support your request for a link to this useful grammar checker.

I am a new user of Espresso, but I also was wondering if there is a grammar check. Is there maybe another solution to perform this check?

 

You have 3 possibilituies:
Native file format (not xlf, mqxliff or sdlxliff):
  • Export bilingual file
  • Check it in Word or any other program
  • Reimport the file

External file format (e.g. xlf, mqxliff or sdlxliff):

  • Export bilingual file
  • Open it in Word or any other program and put on track changes
    Check it
  • Redo the changes in CT manually

Any file

  • Check the file in CheckMate (Okapi Framework) with the LanguageTool option (not tested yet))




I am working mainly with Trados packages. Is there a way that I only export new translated segments?

 

Projects coming from other CAT tools can be translated and saved in CafeTran.  Export to the original format is usually done by the client in their tool used to create the project.

I actually wanted to follow this workflow:

External file format (e.g. xlf, mqxliff or sdlxliff):

  • Export bilingual file
  • Open it in Word or any other program and put on track changes
    Check it
  • Redo the changes in CT manually

The problem is that I sometimes have packages with a lot of perfect matches, and I only want to export the segments I translated to word. I don't need to check the grammar of the perfect matches. Is there a way to do this?

 

You might try the following:


1. Filter > Matches > No exact and context matches.

2. Project > Export and exchange > To HTML File... .


and then open the .html file in Word.
