Gramps uses PyEnchant for Spellcheck Spellchecking and Grammar checkingcomposition. A Dictionary is used for localized spellcheck within Note objects. The Affix file contains the rules to allow reports to compose sentences following grammatically correct plural and tense forms. The Dictionary and Affix files are available from a variety of providers (such as aspell, ispell and myspell). Find the Dictionary and Affix files for your language and install the files in the right place for Gramps to use them. Translate the instructions.
