Excellent share, I've been looking for something like this for quite some time. Thank you!

Yes, you can configure the tool to use different languages, including French and Spanish.

Hi,

Is there any way to configure the tool to use different languages such as French or Spanish?

Keep up the good work,

Gil

Hi Gil,

Yes, you can configure the tool to use different languages, including French and Spanish.
Spellify is powered by the Google spell checker so it relies upon Google for the language support. Take a look at the Spellify home page http://www.spellify.com/ and look for the language selector to test it out.

After initially assuming this was a browser add on and came to make a satirical comment about it, I'm glad i looked and saw this is actually a PHP module for your website that will add spell checking to it. Very nicely done on the client side, have no idea if it will beat up your server side though.

Nice improvement on the automated text field. Reminds me of IntelliSense. Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad i found this..cuz i can't spell very good.

i also can't spell as English is a second language and this will help.

i just saw this is actually a PHP module for your website that will add spell checking to it.

This spell checker script is very useful, thank you for writing it.

I am trying to integrate this into our intranet. Can this be just installed on the server or every client needs some kind of installation.?
Also, when I do the required install for spellify I get an error "xml string cannot be empty or null".
Any ideas?

Spellify calls out to the Google spell check service. If you are using it on the intranet, you may have issues with the corporate proxy server.

Reminds me of IntelliSense. Thanks for sharing.Nice improvement on the automated text field. appreciate your work...
