What I meant was that, since Scribus does not (yet) have an internal 
spell-checker, you'll need to use whatever method works best when you 
consider the overall task. It sounds like exporting, then spell-checking 
is pretty easy, importing back to individual text frames a bit more work.

What does your system use? UTF-8? If you look at an .sla file with an 
outside text editor, are the accented letters correct? The first line of 
the .sla file should say what the coding is.  They will need to match.
