Ofiice 2010: Custom speell checker develop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need develop for MS Word in Office 2010, one spell checker for a local language. Is there information, some like one development kit, about how to develop the spelling dictionary?: how to generate and install LEX and DLL files for this local language?.

    Until now, in this page, http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/language/,  I don't find proofing tools for this language.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Hernyboy

    The date for this KB is July 23, 2007 . Do you know if this KB applies also to Office 2010?

    Thanks.

  • Hi Hernyboy,

    Thanks for your post.

    I think you can use Dictionary object to create your own dictionary for your Word application. Using LanguageSpecific and LanguageSpecific  properties to tell your dictionary which language to check.

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi Calvin

    A "custom dictionary" is a pure text file (*.dic) where the user can list words to supplement the main dictionary he's using.

    But it's not possible to create a main dictionary for a language that Word does not officially support. This does not create the requested *.lex or *.dll files Hernyboy requests in his original message.
