Check Microsoft Word spelling and grammar but not comments

We're working with a client in Germany. I sent him a Word document and he made a ton of comments and markups and he sent it back to me. Just to start, I would like to just check his spelling and grammar but it's making me look at every single comment that he added. How can I just check the spelling and grammar (and skip over everything else)? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
I do not know of a way to globally exclude comments from the checking process. It seems to be an all or selected text method only. I’ll check with a few of my MSCE people to see if there is a way but I’m not optimistic.

    Probably this is not so easy/almost impossible that you wanted. If you turn on spelling check it can be default for whole document/can be configured for partial or specific paragraph. What can you do, if this is possible for you, select paragraph (highlight portion) part by part and do spell check. However this can take some more times.

    First, I would make a copy of the German's document, so that I have an original to refer to if questions. Next, I would run a Word spellcheck and fix which ever comments full within this search - once fixed remove the comments as you go. OR I would run a Grammarly spellcheck and do the same thing as I stated previously. You may not have as many to go through. MS Word's spellcheck does not pick up on all spelling/grammar errors. Also, you could being seeing similar comments which you can search on. Hope this is helpful. Cheers.
