Finnish spell checker, hyphenator and grammar checker for LibreOffice.


Finnish spell checker, hyphenator and grammar checker for LibreOffice. The extension is available for Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10). Linux users may use the packages provided by their distribution (these are available at least for Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Mandriva).

Suomenkielinen lataussivu / download information in Finnish

The extensions is also available for LibreOffice on Mac OS X.

You can pick between two builds to download. The smaller one (Standard Finnish) is good for most people. If you need to proofread texts containing special terms of medicine or natural science you can download the multi-vocabulary build. It too will default to checking against the standard vocabulary but you may go to the settings dialog and select the preferred vocabulary variant under the Voikko pane.

    Release 5.0.2. works well for me using LibreOffice Version (x64) on Windows 10. Handles even monstrous compound words like "tapahtumanjärjestämisyhteyksissä" without highlighting them as mistakes. I also found installation very straightforward after googling "how to add extensions to LibreOffice"

    wery satisfied with libre Office but can not understand why installning of language to the proofreading is so complicated?

    It doesn't work. I wish there would be a decent project (and not a company looking just for visibility) providing Finnish spellchecking

      Why you put 5 starts and say that you HOPE it works well? FYI, It doesn't work!
