    I'm using Telerik DocumentSpellChecker together with a RadRichtextBox in a WPF-Application .

    How do I do a case insensitive word comparison???

    Hi Peter,

    RadSpellChecker does not spell check words that contain only capital letters or words that contain digits. We have it on our to-do list to create spell checker options that will allow turning on and off these cases and it will be included in the next official release - 2013 Q3.

    OK, the new feature is there, but it does not answer my question. 

    Since it was not possible to answer here ("uups something went wrong reply by telerik webserver"), I posed the question again in a new thread...

    Hello Peter,

    Spellchecking al upper-case words is possible through the SpellCheckUppercaseWords property of the DocumentSpellChecker Settings. However, like I said in the other thread you started on the matter, this is intended for spellchecking in languages that do not have a concept of lower case and upper case letters mainly and it might not help you achieve what you are looking for.

    Let me know if I can assist you further.

    Hi Petya,

    SpellCheckUppercaseWords is not what I need.
    German language has - different from English - a concept of lower and upper case words. German nouns start with an uppercase letter (e.g. "Ich habe eine Haus" where "Haus" is a noun and therefore starts with uppercase H).

    I want to add "foo" to the dictionary and the spell checker should not underline "Foo" as incorrect.

    I understand that obviously this is not possible with Telerik SpellChecker..

    Hello Peter,

    You are right that German is handled differently when spellchecking. In this regard, attached is a simple application demonstrating how you can implement spellchecking in German in RadRichTextBox. The dictionary is taken from this forum post and the nouns in it start with uppercase letter, meaning that not only would nouns be checked properly, but if they are written with lowercase letter, they will be marked as an error. 

    Let me know if any additional questions arise.
