Postby totoff on Sat Mar 17, 2012 4:55 pm

hello forum, i just bought a license for sublimetext and wonder, how i may install a german dictionary? i found this explanation at the docs http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/2/spell_checking.html. ifollowed it and downloaded a dictionary from open office. but the filetype is .oxt and i have no idea, how to transform it into a format readable for sublimetext. can someone give me advise on this?

Extract it with "7-zip" on Windows or "The Unarchiver" on Mac. Inside there is a *.aff and a *.dic to copy to your User folder.

Just rename it to .ZIP and extract it with any archiver (even buid-in XP zip-support)

Then copy the files
"de_DE_XXX.aff"
and
"de_DE_XXX.dic"

from the "de_DE_XXX" sub folder

to
"\SublimeText2\Data\Packages\User\"
or to an new sub folder like
"\SublimeText2\Data\Packages\User\Spell - DE\"
or
"\SublimeText2\Data\Packages\Spell - DE\"

Then you will find this new dictionaries in menu
"View > Dictionary > User > Spell - DE > de_DE_frami"
"View > Dictionary > User > Spell - DE > de_DE_igerman98"

where the menu pop-up represents the folder structure. Very handy Jon.



You can also create an folder
"\SublimeText2\Data\Packages\Language - Deutsch"
to make it like the default
"\SublimeText2\Data\Packages\Language - English"


Or just copy your languages specific dictionaries into the default
"\SublimeText2\Data\Packages\Language - English" -folder
where the menu "View > Dictionary > ..." lose it "Language - English" sub menu,
and present all available dic's in one common menu together.
