Stemming

Stemming (Wikipedia) is the process of reducing a word to its word stem that affixes to suffixes and prefixes or to the roots of words known as a lemma. Stemming is important in terminology because terminology typically contains the word in its word stem form, but the text you want to localize may contain suffixes or prefixes. Soluling uses a spell checker to stem words when checking terminology. Even if you don't need a spell checker, Soluling needs the spell checker to check your text's terminology properly.
