Stop clicking on “Ignore” when your text mentions French place names!

If you translate from French, you’re probably sick of clicking “Ignore” or “Add” during the spell check every time a French place name crops up in your text. I’ve got good news!

I’ve created a list of all French place names (communes, départements and régions). Simply add this list to your spell check list in Word or in your CAT tool.

If you use memoQ, create a new Ignore list in the Resource console, then find the list in File explorer, open it in a text editor (e.g. Notepad) and paste this list in.

In the comments, let me know if you find it useful, or you spot any mistakes. Are there any other lists you’d like me to post, such as Swiss towns and cantons?
