For anyone that has ever used Google Docs or Spreadsheets, you know that typing the wrong word can be frustrating. You might spend hours on that one document or spreadsheet and then realize that somewhere in there, you typed something incorrectly. It’s an even worse problem when someone else is doing all of the typing for you! How do we avoid this?

First off, it’s important to understand that these programs are designed with spell check features that will tell you if a word is spelled correctly before it gets saved. Using those functions will save a lot of time in the long run. However, they’re not foolproof and they won’t always catch every mistake that has been made. That’s why it may help to try some of these tips that can help you avoid typing wrong words.

Best that can happen: You save yourself time, money, and frustration by using these tips

Whenever possible, spell out the word rather than using it in shorthand. This will make mistakes a lot less likely to happen as there are fewer ways that one letter could be mistaken for another when typing or writing that way. It also helps with common spelling errors like ‘there’ and ‘their’. That might not always be possible if time is of the essence though so don’t force yourself into that method all of the time just because it may seem easier at first glance!

If saying or spelling out every word isn’t an option then try looking up alternative words online before proceeding with your document or spreadsheet entry. Sometimes what seems like a wrong word that you’re typing in is actually the correct word that’s spelled differently than what your fingers are used to.

Finally, if all else fails and there seems to be no way that a mistake could have been made then backspace over the incorrect letter or letters and try again! You can always delete that whole line of text too if need be so that it doesn’t mess up other entries on that same page.

that’s where you’re wright

This is a good writing habit to get into with any kind of document: spell out the word rather than using it in shorthand Let’s say that your boss asks for an update on project status but when typing up the report together, he said “tell them about how things are going so far” instead of “update.” That could be a pretty big mistake if deadlines have been missed! Long story short? Make sure that what comes off as intended is actually spelled correctly before hitting send. It only takes 30 seconds more time but can make all the difference
