Bilingual spell checking


Chrome now have spell check multiple languages:

Whether it is planned to make similar in Sublime Text 3? For example, I write texts in Russian and English. Examples spell check:

Many words highlighted in red wavy line. But almost of them is not an error, it is the English words. I spend a lot of time to find the real typographical errors in a set of correctly written English words.

If function is entered, it will be very good.

  1. I install LanguageTool plugin, but developers of LanguageTool don’t plan add multilingual spell checking.

  2. I united files Russian.aff with English (American).aff and Russian.dic with English (American).dic as this tutorial. But result is no good.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I have exactly the same problem but with English and Spanish. I don’t use sublime text spell checking anymore because I go crazy with false erros.

It would be awesome to have the ability to spell check multiple languages at the same time.

Yeah, but not very practical. Everybody would want their own language(s) represented.
How many languages would there be? Sublime Text does not have the resources of Google.



Maybe I misunderstood but I was talking about activating current dictionaries, but multiple of them at the time or something like this.

More programs use Hunspell as Sublime Text. Can try to find extension for another program. I try use in Sublime Text Firefox Russian-English Bilingual addon, and it successfully worked for me.

But for single language spellchecking package LanguageTool — the best solution with many nice features.
