  • Hi Pronobesh,

    Regarding your questions:

    1)     Do I have to download anything for the default language dictionary, if yes what are those patches and where can I get those?

    This should not be needed, as the default dictionaries are already there.  There are variations such as American, Australian and British English, but I’m not sure that they are much different than the default one.  Unless there is a specific need to change it, we would recommend the default. 

    2)     How do I request for Russian, Polish and Czech language Dictionary?

    You would first need to be licensed to use these dictionaries.  Once licensed, customer service (fastcsrv@microsoft.com) can add these ALS packages to your account so they are available on MSConnect.  NOTE the application of any ALS package for 5.3 requires Linguistics Studio.  Some customers may experience problems with the large ALS packages such as Russian and Czech.  In this case, Microsoft recommends applying the 5.0 language packs.  These are static dictionaries, meaning they cannot be edited; however the content is the same as the 5.3 dictionaries. 

    3)     How can I download Chinese dictionary? 

    This is available on MSConnect.

    Let us know your findings, and if you have any questions.

     

    Thanks!
