How to setup a spellchecker

Postby erhnam » Thu Jan 18, 2007 1:56 pm

Hello

I need some help setting up a spellcheker for portuguese to work with TeXnicCenter.
I'm new to LaTeX and TeXnicCenter and so I don't really know what to do.

Any help is appreciated!

for Portuguese spell checkers maybe you would want to use ispell or aspell?

search CTAN for it =).

TeXnicCenter uses the same spell checking engine as Mozilla and OpenOffice.org. So you can download a portuguesien dictionary from the open office site at

Does that mean I only have to download and install it and TeXnicCenter will automatically use it?
And I don't use OpenOffice, only Mozilla Firefox. Is the spell checking engine included in firefox?

btw, TeXnicCenter has built in EN and DE dictionaries. Did they come with the program or are they part of that spell checking engine you mentioned?

Sorry, I expressed my self not clearly: The spell checker engine is included in the TeXnicCenter setup. You do not need to install Firefox or OpenOffice (though it is no problem, if you do so).

You simply download the required dictionary from the site mentioned above as a ZIP file. This ZIP-file contains a .aff and a .dic file. Simply put these two files in the language directory of the TeXnicCenter installation directory which is normally located at
  1. C:\Program Files\TeXnicCenter\language

(You will already find .aff and .dic files for english and german language there.)

When you have placed the files there simply restart TeXnicCenter, choose the menu entry "Tools > Options...", the tab "Spelling" and select the new dictionary.

That's it.

Could anyone help me how to make work a Hungarian spellchecker in TeXnicCenter?
Actually it doesn't consist of two files, the Hungarian spellchecker seems to be a more advanced one. And I do not use OpenOffice and Firefox...

I'm talking about this:
http://magyarispell.sourceforge.net
And to get the dictionary:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... _id=641728

Thanks!
