#15 Send To - Aspell with other languages

Ralf Hauser

Aspell 0.50.3 (win32) ( works
fine using the desktop mouse-right-click "Send To -
aspell" for the default language ("en_US"?).

How can I do that if I want to spell-check a German file.
1) Is there a way to change the language once the
spell-checker window has appeared?
2) Would I have to add a second "Send To - aspell-DE"
menu item with additional command-line arguments
(--lang="de_CH"? If so, how would I do that?

My suggestion is to add some words on this to the
manual pages.

    1) No.
    2) This was left out intentionally, cause the DOS console is
    not able to switch encodings correctly. Of course you can
    add a second link in your "documents and
    settings\<yourname>\sendto" folder, but you will run into
    problems using umlauts.

    Thx a link pointing to
    C:\...\bin\aspell\0.50-3-2\bin\aspell.exe --lang=de_CH check
    works perfect. Since I mostly go for html files, e.g. ü
    is not recognized, but I guess, eventually, this will work
    too. Or should I post a corresponding feature request?

    This no longer seams relevent. Closing.
