Spell-checker for Swahili
We have produced a high-level spell-checker for Swahili. It is commonly known that it is not possible to construct high-level spell-checkers for highly inflecting languages such as Swahili. Our technology makes use of finite state methods combined with two-level rules for controlling covering and accurate identification of spelling errors. We have also, together with Lingsoft, developed a hyphenator, which follows language-specific hyphenation rules of Swahili. The spell-checker is fully compatible with versions of Microsoft Word, starting from Word 95. It also works in various components of MS Office.
