Check the spelling of your PDF documents

Quite often, when preparing a document or filling a form, we need to meet a strict deadline, so we become nervous and cannot concentrate, especially when our colleagues are discussing something or our phone is incessantly ringing. As a consequence, we make typos every now and then when one of our fingers hits the wrong key. Quite often, we’ve got no time to proofread the document. The only thing that can save us is a good spell checker. At pdfFiller, we always strive to improve our product. So that our customers don’t send out any documents containing typos or mistakes, we’ve integrated a spellchecker into our PDF editor. Please note, that our spell checker checks only what you type. We presume that the original blank document you have to fill out contains no mistakes, because governmental authorities and agencies usually prepare their forms with due diligence and care. The spell checker immediately underlines misspelled, unknown or uncapitalized words.

You can activate the spell checker at any time before or after you start typing. Click

on the main toolbar. The spellchecker panel will appear below the main toolbar, click on the toggle.

Apart from English, you can check Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, French and Norwegian texts. Select the language you need from the drop-down list.

TIP. If you are studying any of the above-mentioned languages, you can use our spellchecker to check your written exercises. If you need to send an email to your foreign friend or partner, you can also check your messages before sending them out. To correct a word, right-click it and choose its replacement from the drop-down list.

However, it is not always the case that an underlined word is incorrect. The spell checker underlines the words that it does not recognize. If the word is spelled correctly, you can add it to your dictionary. The spell checker will recognize it next time you type it.

What our customers say about pdfFiller

See for yourself by reading reviews on the most popular resources:
Over all really helpful, especially with me filling out awards and scholarships for grade 12. Only issue I had was when typing the text box wouldn't fit as nicely as I would have liked it to, so lines ran through the text and made it a bit harder to read.
