MapSpeller can proof in the following
languages and cultures:
- English (Canada)
- English (United Kingdom)
- English (United States)
- Portuguese (Portugal)
- Portuguese (Brazil)
- None, which is used by users to
indicate that proofing should be done without system languages.
A generic language may come in cultural variants. For example, the
English language comes in three cultures:
English (Canada), English (United Kingdom) and English (United States).
The culture influences the existence or spelling of certain words (such
as color versus colour) within one "generic" language.
Each edition of MapSpeller has a primary language. It is
automatically set during the software installation to the language of
the first installation of the operating system on the computer. For
example, if the computer had Windows installed in English (United
States), the primary language is set to English. If Windows was
installed in French, the primary language would be French. If the PC has
an operating system installed in a language not supported by MapSpeller,
MapSpeller will set it automatically to English. Once the primary
language is licensed, users are able to switch to all the supported
cultures of that language.
The MapSpeller Standard Edition will only proof in its primary
language or one if its cultures. The Professional Edition lets users
specify up to two additional languages for an additional fee. However,
only one culture can be used at a time when proofing with that edition.
All the cultures listed above are supported by the Multilingual Edition,
which can proof in multiple languages and cultures simultaneously.
The Simultaneous Cultures list box is only enabled when the
MapSpeller Multilingual Edition is licensed.
