I work for a medical journal, and we use InDesign C5. I am wondering if there is a way to "teach" InDesign how to correctly hyphenate medical jargon at the end of a paragraph line. Obviously, our journal prints a lot of unusual words, such as ischemia, translateral, psuedomeningioma, and a host of other neurosurgical terms which I can't spell, ha ha. InDesign sometimes hyphenates these words incorrectly at the end of a paragraph line; for example, we often see translateral broken as tran-slateral, instead of trans-lateral. It can be fixed manually, but this is a time suck and sometimes we miss them.
Is there a way to get InDesign to break these words correctly? Would adding a medical dictionary solve the problem? We are English US, btw.
