Would be good to have a spell-checker, to be used in a text before and after a translation, because there maybe appear some strange or malformed translation because a wrong word.
My idea about the implementation of this is to use the spellchecker automatically to “catch” where on all posts are wrong words or text inconsistency. My idea is to use this feature for mass edition. I dont want to, for example, re-edit all my old posts to check if there are any wrong word, and if these wrong words be translated, it will give me problems, because it will be translated wrongly. And there is the case of wrong word generated by the translation engine from a good spelled text. How I will deal with some thousands of wrong words?
Because the mass posting I need to do, the propose is to spell-check all pages before and after the translation and put a message on dashboard warning the admin about wrong or bad spelled words found in the original page and in the translated page. So, the admin
would click on the link and he will be redirected to the page that have the problem and will use the front-end editor in case the problem is in translation, and in case the problem is in the original text, he would be redirected on the normal wordpress editor. I think it is a good use for front-end editor.
For the spellchecker I found these ones:
I think that the best ones are the Aspell and the OpenOffice? dictionaries.
