There is an upgraded Persian dictionary.
Please use and base this dictionary:

Comment 3 ooo 2009-01-28 11:11:21 UTC
As of OOo3.x, dictionaries need to be made available as installable extensions,
for details and how to upload to the extensions repository please see
Comment 4 afshin 2009-01-28 16:39:40 UTC
There is an extension for this: 
but my mean is that's better if Persian language add to the default languages.
Comment 5 ooo 2009-01-29 10:51:35 UTC
What exactly do you refer with "default language"? Inclusion of the spell
checker to the installation set?
Comment 6 afshin 2009-01-30 07:33:12 UTC
My mean is that we (Iranian users) would like to add Persian language in
"Available languages modules" as default without install extension.
As you know, there are 3 language in "Available language modules" right now:
1- English (South Africa)
2- English (UK)
3- English (US)

We would like that the Persian language add to the these and be the forth language.
Comment 7 afshin 2009-01-30 08:13:50 UTC
We will thankful if you (Developers of OOo) include the Persian language module
to the installation set as default.
Comment 8 ooo 2009-01-30 11:51:33 UTC
Are we talking about a Persian UI installation set, or is that the English UI
installation set?
Comment 9 afshin 2009-01-30 12:26:31 UTC
Firstly I apologize that couldn't explain clearly.
No, We don't want a Persian UI installation set. About this case, only thing
that we want  is that the Persian language module be in list of language modules
as default (without install extension) such as 3 languages that I have been

Comment 12 ooo 2009-01-30 13:46:46 UTC
In an OOo3.0.1 English installation set you see different English, French and
Spanish languages (actually I don't know why you see only the English languages
and which build you use) because those are the languages supported by the spell
checker dictionaries included with the installation set. Adding other languages
would mean to include other dictionaries as well, which would enlargen the
installation set further and probably is not what we want. However, I'm
forwarding this to product management.

@mh: please proceed, thanks.
Comment 13 afshin 2009-01-30 14:44:03 UTC
I have used OOo 3.0 and after you description upgraded it to OOo 3.0.1.
After upgrade I saw other languages that you mentioned.
I know OOo 3.1 is a best selection of OOo version for all of people in
throughout of the world because this version is very improved in
We will very thankful if you (mh developer) approve with to add Persian language
to the list of languages.
Thanks again.

first, access to source of extensions is appreciated, the link in the extension
repository is not working.

I'm looking forward to include that dictionary than by default in the Arabic
installation set, I assume adding the English dictionary by default might also
be desired.

Reset assigne to the default "".
