I would like dictionaries for the top ~100 languages or so. Manually searching and evaluating the results at https://extensions.openoffice.org is quite cumbersome at that scale.

Is there a command line utility, .torrent or some other way to get dictionaries for all the major languages or for languages specified programmatically by locale?

This site has the dictionaries.

    Thank you. But note that it does not cover the top 100 or so languages. Aug 15, 2017 at 4:12
  • @AdamBittlingmayer did you end up finding a solution for this?

  • It appears there are only 39 at your link, so there might not even be a "top 100"?

  • Here it lists 107 dictionaries in the python enchant library, but only 62 in the GitHub LibreOffice link. But they come from ASpell. 146 here.

    @Lance No, I did not. The advent of multilingual models with Transformer-based architectures fundamentally changed how we approach these things. Nov 7, 2023 at 8:22
