Dictionaries in a format ready to be used by Sublime Text are available at https://github.com/titoBouzout/Dictionaries.
Sublime Text currently only supports UTF-8 encoded dictionaries. Most dictionaries are not encoded in UTF-8, instead using a more compact encoding for the language in question. To use a dictionary with Sublime Text, it’ll first need to be converted into UTF-8.
Once you have a UTF-8 encoded dictionary, it can be installed by placing it in a package, for example, Packages/User/, which you can access from the menu item. Once the file is in place, you can select the dictionary from the menu.
There are two Settings that effect the spell checking:
which controls if spell checking is enabled, and
dictionary, which gives
the path to the dictionary file to use. For example:
- "spell_check" boolean🔗
If spell checking is enabled.
- "dictionary" string🔗
The package-relative path to the dictionary file.
"Packages/Language - English/en_US.dic"
- "added_words" array of strings🔗
An array of properly spelled words to augment the dictionary with.
- "ignored_words" array of strings🔗
An array of words to ignore when checking spelling.
next_misspelling: Select the next misspelling
prev_misspelling: Select the previous misspelling
add_word: Adds the word given by the
wordargument to the add list
ignore_word: Adds the word given by the
wordargument to the ignore list
