How to develop a spell checker of office?


I would like to develop a spell checker that will work with office ( for Hindi ).

What are the things I have to know in order to integrate with office ?
Does microsoft msdn contains apis for that matter?

Cindy Meister's comment in http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2767812&SiteID=1 pretty much answers that issue:


I'm afraid what you're trying to do is not really supported by the Word object model. 1 and 3 are not possibe; there's no interface for doing those things. For 2 there is an interface - things can be added to the context menu via the CommandBars part of the object model, by trapping the BeforeRightClick event.


However, if you want to provide a customized spell-checking tool, the better approach is to apply to Microsoft for the CSAPI (the API for developing spell checkers using the same interface Office uses). You'll find more information here
