Hi :)
I was wondering if the LibreOffice translators team could help Sergio Martino.  Ubuntu translators 
might find the dictionary useful to if aff and dic file-types are usable.  My guess is that oxt is 
unique to LibreOffice so this is mostly for LibreOffice translators.  

So, is it possible to "register" a 'new language', really a dialect spoken in the Bari area of 
Italy.  How do you get it to appear in the combo-box in the spelling-checker dialog?

Right now it's in aff, dic and oxt formats
Regards from 

Tom :)

1.  Have you been in contact with the translators mailing list?  The one
international one brings together people with a lot of skills from most
of the various languages on offer.  They might be able to help with this
sort of thing.

English is not my mother-tongue so maybe I misunderstood the aim of the
translators mailing list: is it devoted to the interface only?

2.  Which language?

It is a dialect spoken in the Bari (Italy) area,Bari&gl=it&sa=X&ei=WNn4UeWOA-nf4QTQhICYAw&ved=0CDEQ8gEwAA

Not really a lot of work  but it is  useless if I miss this last step. :(

     *Subject:* [libreoffice-users] How to define a dictionary for new


     a friend of mine would like to build a dictionary for a local dialect
     and he asked for my help.

     First I build the aff and dic files and I tested them with hunspell. It

     Next I was able to construct an oxt which install correctly.  However the
     new language does not appear in the list of the installed ones so I was
     not able to use it for checking the open document.

     As a quick hack, I chose an existing language, replaced the aff and dic
     file and installed it. It works.

     So the step I am missing to accomplish my task, it  is how to "register"
     a new language in order to be seen in the combo box in the spelling
     checker dialog.

     Can someone help me with instruction or a pointer to a guide?
