Subject Re: Double dictionaries for languages

The maintainers of the PT language are from Minho University in 
Portugal, but it is António who packets the changes to official Open 

The site of the dictionaries (pre and post reform) is:

Please notice that the dictionaries are or were available from OOo's 
site and had automatic updates (but only the post reform because the pre 
needs to be installed manually).

When I bought Office 2010 Home Student I had to buy the Portuguese 
Dictionary as separate from Microsoft's site since I ordered the 
software from Amazon and it came in English.

Kind regards,
