By default WinEdt comes with a set of dictionaries for American
and British English. These dictionaries are already installed in
WinEdt's Dict\English folder. However, you may want to read the
document English.txt in the above mentioned folder and make a few
choices pertaining to different spelling rules and available
If you are writing in more than one language you should also
consult the document "Modes.txt" in WinEdt's Doc folder to see how
you should best take advantage of WinEdt's ability to tie
dictionaries to submodes.
If you want to add a new dictionary to WinEdt, create a
sub-directory in "Dict" with the name of the dictionary itself.
E.g., if you want to add the Russian dictionary "ru.dic" (which is
inside "ru.zip"), then you would place it in the directory
"Dict\ru". Some dictionaries (for example DE.zip) might do this
for you automatically when un-packing.
WinEdt can use up to 255 different dictionaries simultaneously.
You can specify to which dictionary new words are to be inserted
and more. This makes network installations easier. Read the online
help in Dictionary Manager Dialog for more guidelines...
On WinEdt's community home page:
you'll find links to all currently available dictionaries.
You may also download them directly from CTAN:
ftp://cam.ctan.org (UK) /tex-archive
ftp://tug.ctan.org (USA) /tex-archive
