    Add dictionary
    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 didnīt 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
