Repro: 1. Using English Windows XP create (My Computer-right click, Manage, Local users and Groups, right click Users) new user with non-Latin characters in name. 2. Logon as that user, run Writer, type some misspelled word, right-click it - you do not get "Add" option in context menu. 3. Press Esc, F7 - you get spell-check dialog. Click "Add" button - you do not get dictionary choice.

Any chance for 3.2?

This is a known issue. It usually occurs if the username contains national characters. Sometimes it happens if for some reason there is no standard.dic file under the user profile. For WinXP, standard.dic should be under: C:\Documents and Settings\[user_name]\Application Data\OpenOffice.org\3\user\wordbook The issue can be worked around if you place a copy of standard.dic from a working installation (a user profile with Latin characters only, or from another computer) under the above mentioned directory.

The symptom of "adding words to a dict" is just the tip of the iceberg. :-) See issue 95628 ("UserLayer location defaults to boot drive if username contains non ansi characters") for details. *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 95628 ***
