This page lists spell checker dictionaries, hyphenation files, and thesauri for OpenOffice.org.

To install a new dictionary, call "File -> Wizards -> Install new dictionaries" in OpenOffice.org. Then exit and re-start OpenOffice.org, including the Quickstarter (if used). Most of the files on this page are available for installation via the wizard. If not, download the Pack file, and use the "off-line language installation" option of DicOOo wizard.

You are free to add other resources, but please note that files which are supposed to be installable using OpenOffice.org's integrated wizard (DicOOo) need to be hosted on the official server (ftp.services.openoffice.org). Please contact the lingucomponent mailing list or dnaber at openoffice org to upload your files there.
