Thank you very much Jessica and Margaret for your tips about Word's
built-in functions. They are good, but ideally I would like the computer to
give suggestions within the subject I am writing (how far has the
development of computers can read brain waves come? :-). Well, I should let
you know that I am comparing a bit with the functions in my translation
tool, where the suggestions popup in a suggestion list, but then again the
term suggestions are generated from a translation memory.

Have a nice evening!

All the best,
