The Review tab is the seventh tab in line from the left, and this is where you would go to find the Spelling & Grammar, Word Count, Translate, and Language features in Microsoft Word 2010. There are other features, but these are the most commonly used ones.

The first feature we'll discuss is the Spelling & Grammar button, which is found in the Proofing section. Say, of course, if you spell something wrong (in this case "Highland"), you will want to do one of two things: right click the incorrectly spelled word and choose from a list of corrections Microsoft Word 2010 provides for you or click on the Spelling & Grammar button. Whether you do this right away or at the end of typing up the document is all up to you.


Once you find the word in the given list, you will want to click Change (or Change All if the mistake is repeated multiple times). AutoCorrect will correct the words automatically.
However, if the word is spelled correctly, but Microsoft Word 2010 doesn't have the word in its system, then you can either just click Ignore Once, Ignore All, or even Add to Dictionary. If you click Add to Dictionary, then that word will be considered to be correctly spelled every time you type it Microsoft Office Word 2010, whereas if you click Ignore Once or Ignore All it will only be considered correct for that particular session.

Another way you can do all of this is to simply right click on the misspelled word, and you will be given a list of possible words, and the choices that were listed above.

In order to see the word count of the document, click on the button Word Count under the Proofing section, and a small window will appear. Once you're done, just hit Close.


In the Language section the last two main features are found there. The first one is the Translate feature, and there are three sub-features underneath once clicked. However, we're only talk about the last two.

There is the Translate Selected Text button, and it does just as it is titled. If you select text in the document, you would go and click on that feature, and the research side window will appear.

You can change what the words are translated from and what they are translated to. And if you decide to translate the whole document, there's a button to do that quickly and easily. The results (if any) will come up below that button.


The other button under the Translate feature is the Mini Translator. When enabled, it allows you to simply point to a word or select a phrase to view a quick translation that will appear in a box above or below your pointer.

-Enabled-

The language that is set in the regular translator from the side will be the language used for the Mini Translator.

The last feature is Language, and with this you can simply setting the Proofing Language or the Language Preferences.

When you click on the Proofing Language button, a small window will appear where you can choose any language from the list that you would like to use for, well, proofing. Not only that, you can choose one and set it as your default, and whether you want it to check for grammar or spelling.

The Language Preferences button allows you to go through and just decide all that you want to be set when it comes to Microsoft Word 2010's language settings.

 

After reading through this HowTo, you should now know how to work with the Review tab rather well, and could use it with ease.
