Hi all,

Sorry for posting in English.

I'm on the market looking for a hyphenation plugin for InDesign CS3, since the built-in (Proximity) dictionary is useless.

I'm aware of two products: InDihyph (from Aextra/ITIP) and SmartHyphen (from Woodwing/TALO)

Do you have any experience of either plugin?
Or other solutions?!?

Thanks a lot for any input!

/Jan

Hi, Jan,

I recommend Lingsoft. I haven't used it for InDesign, but they make all the Microsoft proofing tools in Finnish, and I think they are quite good. You can find more information on their home page (Proofing tools -> Generic Proofing Tools). The page is also available in English and Swedish.

Regards,
Mia

Thanks Mia, I didn't know about this!
Have you ever heard about the other plugins I mentioned, or is Lingsoft definitely the most used hyphenation in Finland?!

Never heard May 16, 2008

Hi, Jan,

No, I have never heard of the other two. I am using Lingsoft in MS-Office, and I think it's really good, for both hyphenation and proofing.

Another good one is Soikko (free, open-source), but it's only for OpenOffice, so it won't be very useful for InDesign, unless you import the text from open-office with "hard" hyphens or something like that.

If you only need to hyphenate Finnish words very occasionally, you could also try the Finhyph demo on the Lingsoft home page. (I'm not sure if these posts can include links, so I am not including a link, but you can find it by searching "finhyph" in Google).

Regards,
Mia
