Can I get Afrikaans spell check on Evernote?

Yes, but not the default way because it's not supported. Since Evernote uses MySpell, you can download the language package from Debian.

Download Debian package:

Note: I've selected Afrikaans language by default.

Install 7Zip using the following link:

Right click the .deb file then 7ZIP> Extract file and select a location. Inside the extracted folder you will have an archive called data. Use 7Zip and browse it, then follow the path: data.tar\.\usr\share\hunspell. You will have two files:

  • af_ZA.aff
  • af_ZA.dic

Now, copy these files to the correct directories:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\Dict on a 64bit version
  • C:\Program Files\Evernote\Evernote\Dict on the x86 (32bit) version.

After the files are copied, go to Evernote and enable Spell Checker for the installed language. Go to Menu > Tools > Options > Language. Locate the Spelling group box. Choose the language you installed and click OK, and you now have Afrikaans language installed.
