Please check out the new page. I added most of the other dictionaries
that I had downloaded on my system. If there are other ones you would
like to see on this disc, let me know. I left the names the same as from
the online source, except added the country name for the ones that only
shows the 2 letter country code. If you would like to rename them, let
me know. Some of the names have special codes that may be important in
the original language though, like the 7 different German ones.

Hmmm. ... I am just wondering, seeing as we are adding so many
dictionaries, is there space for ALL dictionaries. Then there will be no
problem with having to pick through ALL of the dictionaries from this
end. It would just be a matter of including all on the DVD. I am
assuming there is enough space to do this. Would that be simpler than
trying to second guess? This would also allow Canadian-Chinese to
install a Chinese language dictionary.

I didn't find the other mail where you ask me about spellchecker. The FR one from Dicollecte will be ok for fr-CA too. The language tool shouldn't be add to the French version because it's very poor and not maintained, instead we are providing Grammalecte. A new version will come very soon, Olivier is working on it right now, so if you can wait a few days, you will have a high quality tool for grammar checking in French. Also as I said, it would be great if you could add the file containing AutoCorretions in fr-CA local, because it will arrive empty otherwise.

For that matter, I don't know if this is going too far, but could we
also offer all language files on the DVD that would allow for example a
Canadian-Chinese to have a Chinese based LibreOffice with Chinese

From what I know there is no Chinese spellchecker because one sign is a word. Instead you use IME and the tool that comes with your distro.

Of course the DVD would be based on English, French-Canadian, and

How does this sound?

I agree that I am pushing for at least a North American version of a
DVD, but as long as someone wants to add the other languages to the DVD,
I have no problems with that. Adding the Central and South American
documentation and other links will be welcome, if someone could show me
where they are.

I was thinking about having a set of links for switching languages.

English, French-Canadian, Spanish-Mexico

These links will allow you to take the page you are viewing and change
to the other language version of that page. Something like the Wiki
pages do. Adding the other languages to the system will be half-way
easy, if someone actually does the translations editing for me. Google
does not do a good job, I am told.

If you're using SilverStripe we can use the translation page to achieve that, just as we have done with

I am wondering if this is where we could enlist the help of Sophie and
the translation team?

If you speak about the FRl10n team, I'm alone in it actually. I've too much work currently with the FR version (we just update the full localization from OOo to LibO and it gives me some work) and other various tasks to take care of the site, but next week I can plan to have it on my agenda. And please, don't make me edit Google translation or I will be desesperate ;-)

This is really coming along. Many thanks to to the both of you, Tim and
Drew. You are both amazing!


BTW ... a lot of talk on the Design list re: misuse of brand. Let's keep
a watch on this and make sure we are keeping to the required branding
rules[1]. I think we are good on this.


Bernhard could have a look when it's final, he has written everything with Charles, so he will quickly see if something is wrong.
