Resources for Wordprocessing in Gaelic

Here are some useful links for enabling spell check in word processors for Scottish Gaelic:

  • Gaelic spelling dictionary for Mac OS X (with additional links for LibreOffice & OpenOffice and Microsoft Office):
  • LibreOffice with Gaelic interface (ie all menu items & dialogues are in Gaelic):
    (NB. This link should auto-detect your operating system and give you the latest version. You need to download both the Main Installer and the Translated User Interface.)
  • OpenOffice with Gaelic interface:
    (NB. This link is to the general download page. Scroll down to find the Gaelic version. It may be better to download the full English(GB) install and only the Gaelic (Scottish) language pack.)
