"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

skymag,

I'm sorry, but it doesn't seem as if Microsoft has developed an Afrikaans dictionary for Office 2000. This page has information about the different language versions of Office that are available and there is also a page here about the 'Proofing Tools'. Unfortunately, Afrikaans is not mentioned anywhere.

I have also searched the Internet for third-party products, but without success.

Hi skymag,

The spellchecker can be found on following site, but it doesn't seem to be available for free:

The ordering address is on the bottom of this page:

Spellchecker on its own:

Hope this helps,

PS Is it true that Afrikaans has such a rich and uncontrolled vocabulary ? That's what I saw when doing research. I understand the language a little, by the way, I speak dutch as I'm from Belgium.
