OpenOffice.org Writer: Need a Different Dictionary? No Problem.

Often we need to Spellcheck a document in a foreign language and, unfortunately, we don’t have one. We get what the program comes with when we choose a download version, but that’s not always the only language you’ll be working with.

If this is you then here’s some good news…

As a part of the extensions available from the OpenOffice.org site there is a huge list of dictionaries available to download.

The dictionary downloads can be found at http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/dictionaries [1].

The list includes everything from Afrikaans to Zulu and all that’s in between so I’m sure that you’ll find what you need.
