LibreOffice in Luxembourg: Ready for work

LibreOffice is available in over 100 languages, giving billions of people access to high-quality productivity tools, all across the globe. And now we’re adding Luxembourg to the list, with a new spell-checker extensions for Luxembourgish (Lëtzebuergesch).

The extension is available to download on this page.

Michel Weimerskirch, the extension’s maintainer, explains more: “My goal is to provide good quality spell-checking tools for the Luxembourgish language. LibreOffice is available on all major platforms for free, and also has the necessary programming interfaces I needed to even implement a phonological rule that could now be implemented using standard spell checking libraries. Over the past few years LibreOffice has grown to become a very mature office suite, so nowadays there is definitely no reason to not use it in a professional environment.

Paolo Vecchi, a local LibreOffice supporter – and recently elected as member of the Board of Directors of The Document Foundation – worked with Michel Weimerskirch to publish the new dictionary on the LibreOffice extensions portal, and will coordinate with the local Government and European institutions established in Luxembourg to help them upgrade to the
most complete and professional open source office suite.

Many local governments, organisations and companies around the world use LibreOffice every day – check out a selection here.
