Is there any easy way to install Australian English Hunspell dictionary?

Hello,

InDesign doesn't have a built-in dictionary for Australian English, AFAIK.
!Following Adobe's instructions for installing Hunspell dictionary is difficult since the addresses for storing the dictionary apparently keeps changing between CC versions.

Also, instructions for converting, renaming file names and creating the final dictionary folder though not difficult, feels uncomfortable, considering that any mistake can affect the document I'll be sending to print, which in my case is a magazine with a considerable print run.

Is this really Adobe's official way to install the dictionary, or a more straightforward method exist which I'm unaware of?

Kind regards,

Kasra

Six years later and there is still no English Australia dictionary. How hard can it be? Microsoft manages it. If Adobe can do an English Canada, they can do English Australia

Hi,

 

Sorry for the delay in response. I understand this has been pending for a long time, so let me assure you, I'll share your feedback with the team, and you can do that too by voting for this request. This is the best way of sharing feedback with the Engineering team. 

Thanks

Rishabh

InDesign doesn't even have a dictionary that considers 'internet' a valid word. (Along with many, many common terms later than Webster's day.) But it does find room for words not in any standard dictionary, like 'gullible.'
