[Solved] Add additional dictionary in OpenOffice.org Writer

Postby janerz » Fri May 04, 2012 12:18 pm

Good day!

I just want to know how to add dictionary in open office writer, because right now I am trying to install a spell checker for cebuano(native language of filipino - http://www.ngkhai.com/pointcebu/facts/language.htm ) language. Which is much better - install additional dictionary or making use of the UNO component and loaded the spell checker program?

Your immediate response will be greatly appreciated :)

Have a nice day!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

See that section of the tutorial: 4. There is no dictionary for my language.

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Thanks to avoid such comment if you answer 24hrs after a reply posted within 30min after your question...

What algo do you need? The installation of extensions or the creation of such an extension? Source code should be available somewhere on the Apache Software Foundation site but you'll get the whole code I guess.
Creation of extensions is documented in the extension site. There is also an extension to build extensions (Basic Addon Builder IIRC).

Thank you for the site, yes, I have a problem in creating the extension for my native language which is cebuano, and I try to customized and edit the language files in the existing dictionary and try to install it, and it was successfully installed but when I restart the open office writer and want to use the Cebuano spell checking dictionary, I can't find the language in the language options.

Is Cebuano part of the ISO languages recognized by OOo? It has to so that the dic is taken into account by OOo.

First you can try to use an existing locale id (like fr-FR) to configure your extension (if you don't use French dic). If the Cebuano spell check works fine when you set the language in the text to French, then you know that your extension works. But you'll need to make the Cebuano locale available.

There are some topics here about the creation of dictionaries, you should search for them.

You can try this page: http://www.openoffice.org/lingucomponent/
Else, ask on the mailing list (see the support web pages of the AOO site).
