Dictionary installer

Logo DicOOo

Dicoo is an utility that transparently installs spelling, hyphenation and thesaurus dictionaries. Included in OpenOffice.org since the 1.1.2 version, it is accessible via the menu "File" - "AutoPilot" - "Install new dictionaries...".

The principle of this tool is to connect itself on mirrors in order to propose a list of dictionaries, available for a great number of languages (more than 50). Once your choice carried out, DicOOo downloads them and installs them automatically.
