German  dictionary (de_CH)

German dictionary (de_CH)

German dictionary igerman98 (de_CH, Switzerland), for Firefox, Thunderbird und Seamonkey.

What is German dictionary (de_CH)?
German Dictionary (de_CH) is a spell-check dictionary add-on for Swiss German language, designed for Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey. This Hunspell-based version of the igerman98 dictionary is not compatible with Myspell, and functions exclusively with newer Mozilla versions. For installing dictionaries in Thunderbird, refer to the provided guide. For Thunderbird 65 users facing non-functionality, the issue may lie in dictionary support shifting to WebExtension dictionaries, a change expected to normalize soon.

Dies ist das für Firefox 3, Thunderbird 3, Seamonkey 2 und neuere Versionen optimierte Rechtschreib-Wörterbuch für Schweizer Deutsch (de-CH, Schweiz, "neue" Rechtschreibnung). Es ist die Hunspell-Version des igerman98-Wörterbuchs. Hunspell-Wörterbücher sind nicht kompatibel mit Myspell, weshalb dieses Wörterbuch ausschließlich mit den neueren Mozilla-Versionen funktioniert; für die alten Mozilla-Versionen sollten auch die älteren Wörterbuch-Addons benutzt werden. Wer Probleme mit der Installation von Wörterbüchern unter Thunderbird hat, findet hier eine kleine Anleitung:

Für Thunderbird 65-Benutzer, wo das Wörterbuch vielleicht nicht mehr geht: aus den Thunderbird-Release-Notes:

DICTIONARY SUPPORT: Only WebExtension dictionaries are supported now. Please download new dictionaries from since still provides "legacy" dictionaries compatible with Thunderbird 60 ESR. This may change as soon as Thunderbird 60 ESR can also handle WebExtension dictionaries (planned for version 60.5).

Ich hoffe das dieses Chaos bald von Mozilla gefixt ist.
