Description

LanguageTool is a style and grammar proofreading software for English, French, German, and many other languages. You can think of LanguageTool as a software to detect errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect, e.g. mixing up there/their, no/now etc. It can also detect some grammar mistakes.

Supported languages are: Asturian, Belarusian, Breton, Catalan, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, French, Galician, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Ukrainian. Please note that the level of support differs a lot between languages.

NOTE: Starting with LibreOffice 7.4, LanguageTool can be used from LibreOffice without this add-on. However, there are some reasons to use the extension:

  • The extension runs on the local machine. No remote server is needed.
  • The extension supports all rules working on the level of full text (e.g., opening and closing quotes are recognized even if they are more than one paragraph away from each other).
  • The extension automatically adds all lists of correctly spelled words (according to LanguageTool) to the dictionaries used by LibreOffice.
  • The extension supports grammar checking of Impress and Calc documents (Only manual checking by the LT check dialog. An automated check is not supported by LibreOffice.)
  • The extension offers a configuration dialog:
    • Easily activate / deactivate optional rules
    • Easily deactivate / reactivate default rules
    • Define custom colors and styles for rule groups or single rules
    • Change parameters for some special rules
    • Define profiles to check different kinds of documents

If you have trouble with the installation, please see our checklist.

You can always get the latest version of this add-on at https://languagetool.org/download/LanguageTool-stable.oxt - the version linked here at extensions.libreoffice.org might not be up-to-date.

    Does what it says on the tin. For some reason I could not find it with the search option on the extensions website. But the Language Tool website has a link.

    Works as intended.

    It was much harder than it should be to find out that one needs to install this extension. Downloading it was slow and installation was somewhat non-intutive. And then I find that when I finally get the thing to run - and, er, not run multiple simultaneous copies of the proofing window - it has dropped the proofing window out of HiDPI and is too small to read.

    This is like the bad old days of Linux. It's disastrous. I will have to uninstall the edition to make any type of proofing within Libre Office usable.

    I am on Mint Cinnamon with LibreOffice 6.4.6.2.

    It seems that v5.1.3 does not work with the LibreOffice 7. It crashes the LO. :(

    Keep in mind it's far from perfect though.

    "Can you do plan by yourself? Yoda I speak like and check grammar I do." doesn't have any errors, according to LanguageTools.

      LT isn't optimized to find errors that people artificially add to their text.

    actual version 5.0.1

      This one crashes my Libre Office v6.4, please help with solutions if you can.
