I am finding myself more and more using French as well as English. I use hunspell (mostly on Slack and Signal) which picks languages from locale,

Is there a way to have my locale support both at the same time so that hunspell can correct both English and French side-by-side?

My locale currently read:

; locale
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=en_GB.UTF-8

It appears that signal-desktop does not support multiple languages yet… thus a hunspell solution would be welcome.

  • You can specify which language to check with -d, i.e. hunspell -d en_US. – Sjoerd Apr 2 at 9:04
