Google Chrome has just introduced a simultaneous multilingual spellchecker. This means that a text that includes more than one language can now be spellchecked at the same time.
Long gone are the days when writing in more than one language clearly meant having only one accepted language and the rest of the words underlined with that annoying eye-popping red color.
Now, thanks to Google Chrome’s brand new update, you are free to write at will and indulge your passion for foreign languages. And the best thing about it is that not only will the red lines appear only when necessary, but that you will be able to write in another language correctly as well, without having to conduct a separate spell check.
All you need to do is to add the exact languages that you are probably going to write in, and Google Chrome will conduct a simultaneous multilingual spellcheck while you write. Furthermore, even when you do misspell something, the suggested correct versions will include words from all the languages that you have chosen, thus offering you all the choices you need.
This new feature will prove to be extremely useful for people who speak two languages at once, such as expats, people who are working or studying abroad or people who come from a multinational family.
While these people need o use one language for some of their contacts, they need to use another for the remaining part of their contacts. This means that their writing will be labeled as misspelled in a significant part of their conversations.
Furthermore, since this update is embedded into the Google Chrome platform, it will apply for comments and posts and it will prove to be extremely useful for programs like WordPress.
It remains to be seen if this simultaneous multilingual spellcheck will lead to mistakes from the auto-correct features from some platforms, but all in all it is a significant improvement and it is therefore expected to generate a very positive response from the general public. So whether you like throw in some foreign words to sound fancy every once in while, or whether you actually live a bi- or multilingual lifestyle, Google Chrome will make things much easier for you.
