    Dear Telerik,

    We have a problem with the French spellchecker. When spellchecking words with appostrophes, words with single quotes as appostrophe ( ' ) will be seen as error. There are no problems with real appostrophes ( ’ ). The English dictionary allows both of them while the French one doesn't.

    Since a vast majority of our users will use the single quote appostrophe in their texts, having to validate and ignore manually all these false positives a gazillion times over and over makes the spellchecking a real pain in the ***. All they're left with is the impression that the spellchecker is buggy and therefore, they won't trust the result... that is, if they got the patience to go through all the spellchecking operation.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Philippe,

    Please, try the attached fr-FR dictionary which contains the words with l' and d'. The spellchecker will not spellcheck the words with ' in the dictionary as incorrect.

    Dear Rumen,

    It took us some time to run the tests but so far, everything seems to be top notch!

    I really appreciate your responsiveness!

    ps. Will this new dictionary be included in future releases?

    Hi Philippe,

    I am glad that everything works as expected now. I will talk with our team lead and we will consider replacing the current French dictionary with this one.

    Hi Pascal,

    The solution is to use the third party NHunspell spellcheck provider and the French OpenOffice dictionary.
