Hi.
I have an English version of Os X, but I'm Norwegian.
So I would like to add the Norwegian dictionary to my spell-checker in Os X.
I sthis possible? When the spell.checker is invoked I press apple+: to see it's settings, but I can't select Norwegian there, only swedish and other languages. No Norwegian.
Is there a way to add dicitonarys?
I can't find anything on the apple pages.

Thanks

Hi drde,

I searched the web and found a page on wiki which may help you.

You'll need to download NeoOffice and use it for your word processing, but you can read the full article here:

thanks a lot!!!
I can't try it right now as my MB has random shutdowns.
So I'll post a reply when I get it back.
But it looks promising

It didn´t work.
I found out that the built in spellchecker apple provides has no Norwegian dictionary. But if you install cocoAspell and add a Norwegian dictionary it suddenly does
