Are the chemistry-related documents you type in your word-processing program overwhelmed by a thicket of squiggly red “spelling error” lines? Then the newly updated Chemistry Dictionary for Word Processors is for you. The free program teaches word processing software to recognize roughly 104,000 chemistry-related terms. That ought to lead to fewer false alarms during a spell check.
At Mitch’s Chemistry Blog, azmanam (the dictionary’s developer) has posted a more detailed description, including compatibility information, downloading instructions, and a form to submit words that will be considered for inclusion in the next update.
Azmanam, thanks for making science writers’ days a bit brighter.
Thanks to you and everyone behind the dictionary, our prolines will no longer be converted to pralines, our dimers will no longer automatically become dimmers, and our silyls will no longer be mistaken for something silly.
