A resource string contains one or more words that are not recognized by the Microsoft spelling checker library.

This rule parses the resource string into words (tokenizing compound words) and checks the spelling of each word/token. For information about the parsing algorithm, see CA1704: Identifiers should be spelled correctly.

By default, the English (en) version of the spelling checker is used.

To fix a violation of this rule, use complete words that are correctly spelled or add the words to a custom dictionary. For information about how to use custom dictionaries, see CA1704: Identifiers should be spelled correctly.

Do not suppress a warning from this rule. Correctly spelled words reduce the time that is required to learn new software libraries.
