Hello

I am a total beginner trying to use OmegaT. My question is really basic. I was trying to set up the spell check dictionary, which is the first step after the installation, according to the manual, but I kept getting an error message that the Java was timed out. I made sure I had the latest JRE and tried again but with no luck. What do you think is the problem here?

Thank you

It might be an issue with the way Java connects to the Internet.

You can either download and install spell-checking dictionaries manually (see the manual), or try and troubleshoot Java's connectivity (e.g., can other Java programs connect to the Internet, do you use a proxy to connect, etc.). The latter should be easier to troubleshoot in the Yahoo support group.

I do experience the same problem Feb 2, 2012

I cannot even find an English dictionary that could be used for this purpose

Otherwise Omegat runs smoothly on my Mac


But it is pretty disturbing to counter-check every document with word or TextEdit afterwards

Is there someone out there who could possibly post a step for step manual

Update your version, or install the dictionaries manually Feb 2, 2012

The automatic installation stopped working because Oracle transferred OpenOffice.org to Apache and, in the process, broke some web pages.

You can read http://www.omegat.org/en/howtos/spelling.html if you are using the "Latest version" (2.5) or wish to do a manual installation, or update to the latest version if you are using 2.3.

In 2.3.0 update 6, the URL used for the dictionaries has been fixed, after we found a working one.
