Spell Catcher 8 Languages

All Spell Catcher products use the Proximity Linguistic System, along with our own customized enhancements, as the basis for their spelling, thesaurus and dictionary definition features.

When you install Spell Catcher 8 (full version, not the trial) and choose the default Easy Install, only the U.S. English language databases are installed. For additional languages, choose either the Custom Install or Full Install options. If you already have Spell Catcher 8 installed, you can choose Custom Install at any time to install just the additional languages you would like to use.

Dutch, Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese languages for Spell Catcher 8 are available at an additional cost of $10 USD from our online store at Kagi.

Spell Catcher 8 comes with these spelling, thesaurus and dictionary databases.
