The problem I have with "selling" LO to computer centers, both regular and
ones that teach English as a second language, is how many languages can LO
support at the same time.
I am talking about two ways. 1 - usable dictionaries in the list. 2 -
different languages you can change your menus to.
The first one is the key for me.
You have English, French, Spanish [3 regional versions], Italian, and 4 or
5 other different language dictionaries, installed and enabled, in the
Extension Manager. How many of those languages are usable to the user
writing documents in English and one or two other languages at a time, then
someone else sits down and tried to use his or hers language[s] with
English. So how many installed and enabled languages can be used at the
same time? I was told there was a very small limited number.
I can't vouch for the second point, but regarding available dictionaries,
here's my experience: I currently have LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 installed
under Windows, with the default installation package. In the list of
available languages for dictionaries it give me a quite long list. Granted,
some are "variations" (like multiple "english" ones), but even then,
there's quite a few. I believe that all of them can be used without
restriction. At least there is none visible.
I wrote a small document with four paragraphs, in French, English, Deutsh
and Russian, and was able to set each paragraph to use the correct
dictionary with minimal effort:
By moving the cursor from one line to another, you should see the language
change in the statusbar. There's multiple way to change the language for a
paragraph, but here's two that are quite fast and accessible:
- Click in the statusbar on the language portion, that will show you a
popup menu, you can then choose "set language for paragraph"
- In the "Tools" menu, go to "Language"
I think this should answer your first concern.
