Apologies for writing this in English.

I have a growing number of UK-based clients for whom I am commission German language trnaslations for print (leaflets, adverts etc) and hyphenation is a recurrent issue in order to avoid ragged lines, particular when the text is laid out in narrow columns.

I know there is a bit of debate about hyphenation in German as a result of the latest orthographic changes, but apart from this, does anyone know how I can show all potential hyphenation points (either using Word or using 3rd-party software)?

Hi Tim,
I vetted your original posting in order to send notifications to those following the German forum. However, we try to keep postings in this forum in German. Therefore, I will move the topic to a more appropriate (English language) forum.

Best regards,
