I can see where the misunderstanding is coming from. In the origianl word
ocunt POW, shaw asked the coder to create a new tools menu, which would
have spellcheck, options and wordcount in it. therefore, i took out the
edit_spell and replaced it with a tools_spell. Thus, the translations can
no longer find references in for the menu items they have. There is no
real way to get them to compile, short of removing spellcheck an options.
The other alternative is to have me edit all the translation files, which
I am willing to do, but I would think it risky to have me editing them for
langauges that I cannot test. But I will try.
