Pega Platform includes an industry-standard tool that flags spelling mistakes. When you provide your users with a spell checker, you reduce input errors, and make the user experience more efficient.By default, every application includes dictionaries for English, French, German, and Spanish but you can expand the language set as needed by adding more languages and dialects.
Pega Platform includes dictionaries that support the following languages and dialects:
en-USlocale for American English
en-CAlocale for Canadian English
en-GBlocale for British English
frlocale for French (France)
delocale for German (pre- and post-Reformation)
eslocale for Spanish
To support additional languages, you can acquire dictionaries from Wintertree Software. You upload dictionaries into the rules in your application, and then configure them by accessing the spell checker rules in the SysAdmin section of the Records menu.
- Extending the spell checker to other languages
Ensure correct spelling and diversify the scope of the spell checker in the rich text editors (RTEs) in your application, by defining additional supported locales.
- Enabling adding words to the spell checker dictionary
Give your users more agency to manage their application dictionary by providing them with tools to add new words to the spell checker. This flexible approach improves the experience of users who frequently write longer texts, and reduces their frustration.
