Missing dictionaries in the spellcheck engine.


Content Studio setup contains a limited number of preinstalled dictionaries used in the spellcheck engine. .


To add additional dictionaries to Content Studio, the first step is to open the SQL database table dbo.MLCLanguages using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (or similar tool). This table is part of all web site databases created by the Content Studio setup program. Find the row containg the language for which you would like to add a dictionary. Set the value of column SpellCheck to True. Notice the value of the column ShortString (th for Thai, for example) - this will be used as part of the dictionary filename. Perform this database change for each website database that should support the new dictionary. The next step is to create a text file within the Dictionary folder found in the Admin folder, under Spellcheck. Add a textfile and rename it to the value found in the ShortString column, using .dic as the file extension (th.dic for example). Add all words to this file - one per row, sorted alpabetically. Restart the web browser and the new dictionary should appear within the spellcheck dialog.
