Hello, guys.

I have a problem, and I'd like some help. I have to design a book in Swahili, but I couldn't find this language at the paragraph styles so that I can hyphenate the text. How can I hyphenate a Swahili text in inDesign?

Thks.

Mateus Advincola

I did a Google search on Swahili and was unable to find a reference to a dictionary for the Swahili language in InDesign.

 

However, there may be a way of using this Hunspell spellchecker but I wouldn't know how:

Mateus, if you download the file "Release 202109" from the link that Steve posted, you can add a .zip to the end of the filename and unzip the file. Inside, there's a file called "hyph_sw_TZ.dic" which has a set of Swahili hyphenation rules. You can install those hyphenation rules according to these instructions
