the idea is to use wikipedia data to create autocomplete for most languages.

create a script that scan wikipedia and categorize the words:
1. by languages.
2. by popularity .
(this script will only be used once you categorize the data, this script is not
for openoffice code).
mix it with the text in the user document. 

and that's it :).

@ tester3: Any ideas how the performance will be when autocompletion will be
done over the internet by wikipedia? reassigned

the all idea is to use wikipedia in a different way, not as a wikipedia but as a
statistic tool.

with this statistic tool we can learn what is the most popular words that people
are writing

after you created this list of words, you don't need wikipedia 

is that theoretically possible ?
