Hi Sergio

Ok, went back to look at this to try and help further, as I was able to load my countries two of the 11 languages I wanted to use, this way.

In "Tools - Options - Language settings - Languages" in the section "Language of" and field "Locale setting" can you see your created language/dialect you are wanting to use. And then further down under the section "Default languages for documents" and field "Western" or "Asian" or "CTL", can you see your created language/dialect there.

Likewise under "Tools - Options - Language settings - Writing aids", in the "User-defined dictionaries", you can click on the "New" radio button and add the name you gave the dictionary, then in the next drop-down menu "language" see if you can again locate your created language/dialect".

Hope this helps you to get further. If not then I would follow Tom's proposal in his reply.

Dear Andrew,

maybe I am missing something.

In "Tools - Options - Language settings - Languages" I can set the
defaults but I am only able to choose among the existing languages.

In "Tools - Options - Language settings - Writing Aids" I can set the
user-defined dictionaries (which add/subtract to/from an existing
languages) but again can not add a language.

Hi Sergio

Have you tried to add it under "Tools - Options - Language settings" and
then the sub-options of "Languages" and "Writing aids". This might guide
you to get the language into your workspace.

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 do 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?
