[libreoffice-l10n] "are flagged" vs "appear as a typo"

Hello!

Sorry for this philosophical question.

Can I replace in the GB dictionary FAQ the word "appears as a typo" by
"are/is flagged"?

FAQ:
http://marcoagpinto.cidadevirtual.pt/faq.html

I believe that both mean the same, but I need some advice before
changing all occurrences.

Thanks!

Kind regards,

For me, appears as a typo is more precise than flagged, but I'm not an
English native speaker.

Hi,

Strictly speaking, spellchecker’s markings don’t mean ‘this is definitely a
typo’, they rather mean ‘this word is not in my dictionary, so it maybe
needs your attention’. So I would prefer ‘are flagged‘, but I am also not a
native speaker.

Cheers,
Mihail
