I need to mass-correct large amounts of documents in German. I need to handle several hundred pages of text. I have written a macro to do mass find-and-replace operations on common spelling mistakes.
I need to find a way to correct the common typing ERror where the SEcond CHaracter is CApitalized ALthough it Should Not Be.
Is there a wild card search I can use to replace all occurrences of the mis-capitalized second character in a word with the lower-case counterpart?
Could this wildcard account for the fact that abbreviations should not be changed?
I suppose one could pull something like this off with RegEx. I'd also be willing to use a third party tool or an editor with this macro capability.
A web search did not do much good, I cannot seem to find the correct combination of search terms.
- Before: This is a TExt with FAlse CApitalization. The company ABC should not be affected, nor should US. And: TGIF.
- After: This is a Text with False Capitalization. The company ABC should not be affected, nor should US. And: TGIF
Excuse my frequent edits, but after some head-scratching and reading the Word manual I managed to create a wild card that would find a reasonably large subset of misspelled words.
It will find words like CApital and SMall but not UPS or HBO (not affiliated). Unfortunately, the replace field does not handle Regex. I am still looking for a method that will replace the misbehaving word with the correct spelling.
