OpenOffice Dictionary Extension

Install More Dictionaries for Spelling and Grammar on OS X

I always forget how I installed the spelling dictionary language files last time, so here’s just to remember:

  1. Download Open Office language dictionary with .oxt extension from Extensions site
  2. Rename .oxt to .zip and extract
    Rename .oxt to .zip dialog
  3. Look for locale subdirectory like sk_SK and locate sk_SK.aff and sk_SK.dic locale files
    Dictionary Locale Files
  4. Open local ~/Library/Spelling (to go to the folder, hit Cmd + G in Finder) and locale .aff and .dic files
  5. Confirm installation in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text > Spelling
