Adding foreign language dictionaries to Eclipse text editors and mylyn

This article [1] says it all, but here again for greek and linux:

sudo apt-get install aspell aspell-el gawk

aspell dump master el | awk -F/ ‘{print $1}’ > dictionary_el.txt

And then in Eclipse : Window -> Preferences -> General -> Editors -> Text Editors ->Spelling

Add dictionary_el.txt as a User Defined Dictionary

Update 28.12.2011 A reader pointed out that on Mac OS the dictionaries can be found under ~/Library/Spelling

  1. Thanx for the nice post George. It reminds me to reactivate the spelling in eclipse. As a note for mac users: in Max OS X you can find the dictionary files under:
    ~/Library/Spelling
    Do the same steps as described in the post to install the dictionary in eclipse.
