Multilanguage

Posted

Hi, the problem is, there is no way to install a multi-language pack. The extension is downloaded well, but when I write in the language all is mark as wrong written. Since I am tri-language English, Spanish and German, this is a main issue for me. Everything what is not written in English is marked as wrong written. In this moment I am forced to use another browser, it is a pity because I really like Firefox, but the language issue break down the workflow in such way that I can't use it. I hope you can give me a hand.

Have a great day. Karsten

From https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/language-tools/

Installing a dictionary will add a new language option to your Firefox spell-checker, which checks your spelling when you fill out Web forms. Language packs change the language of the entire application.

So since you are trying to use the spellchecker you need dictionaries.

You can install multiple dictionaries, but you can only select one dictionary at the time via the Languages sub menu in the right-click context menu of a text/input area.

I done this, but there is no spell checking at all for another language than English, I have the German dictionary, but when I write something in German, all words are marked as wrong, and they not wrong, because I am German. The question is why, having the German dictionary all German words are marked as wrong written. Thanks

Perhaps because the German dictionary is not selected for spell checker to check words against.
