During the Spell Check process in Wordfast Pro, you have the option Add to Dictionary to tell the checker to ignore a word and to not consider it a spelling mistake.

Q. I have realized that I must have accidentally clicked on "Add to Dictionary" when doing a spell-check at some point, because "eduction" is accepted as a valid spelling. How can I get into the dictionary to remove this, so that this misspelling will be flagged going forward?

Follow the steps below to remove “eduction” from your personal spellcheck ignore list:

In short, the path for personal spellcheck dictionaries is the following:

/Users/username/WordfastPro/spellcheck 

In this folder, there is a file called "language locale" with extension *.personal (e.g. "ru_RU.personal"). Open it in a text editor (e.g. NotePad), delete the incorrect word, and save.


For Mac Users You can also use the “Go To Folder” and type in the path above. All you need to do is go to Finder, hit Command+Shift+G (or Finder > Go > Go to Folder) and type in /Users/username/WordfastPro/spellcheck (where "username" is your username) and you will immediately see the .personal file.
