I downloaded the spanish language package, but I am having a hard time understanding how to install it. If anyone could clarify where do I put the language files, I would be very thankful.

As far as I know there is no language modules available. I believe you are talking about the localized version of OOo? How big is that file, about 70MB? If so then you are having the Spanish localized version of OOo. Unpack that file using winzip or any compression/uncompression utility and you will see a file called setup (if you are under Windows then look for setup.exe or just double clik on 'setup') Ooo will guide you through.

Do read the Readme file there if you want to install in a multiuser environment. You can also make a serch in the forum for same.

Good luck and have fun.

I believe, it's about the spellchecker pack (consisting in the given case of spellcheckers for Spanish(Spain) and Spanish(Mexico)). If yes, the following must be done.

1. Unpack the total package.
2. Unpack spellchecker files (*.aff and *.dic) to <OOO home>\share\dict\ooo\ (for Windows, for Linux it should be different)
3. Edit the file dictionary.lst in that folder by adding:
Code:
DICT es ES es_ES

for Spanish(Spain)
and
Code:
DICT es MX es_MX

for Spanish(Mexico)
4. Similarly, if you need thesaurus, unpack thesaurus files .dat and .idx to the same folder and add to dictionary.lst
Code:
THES es ES th_es_ES


Note:
You can use Spanish(Spain) or Spanish(Mexico) spellchecker for Spanish of other countries. For example, add to dictionary.lst
Code:
DICT es AR es_ES

or
Code:
DICT es AR es_MX

for Spanish(Argentina)

If that is the case, are you using the latest stable OOo 1.1.2, it has a nifty autopilot (which is actually a macro embeded into a sxw document that can help you retrieve, install, and upgrade your dictionaries, hypenation list and thesaurus. I just love it.

I don't believe in autopilots Wink
Now, seriously, this autopilot, AFAIK, can be donwloaded and used with previous versions (at least, with 1.1.1 it should be nice too). However, the autopilot can't help. if you want to use a spellchecker of some language or language variant for another language (variant). I mean, it won't install Spanish(Spain) to check Spanich(Chile), for example. Or I'm wrong?
