This is really useful: it makes all the 70+ Aspell dictionaries available to you, via the system-wide spelling feature. CocoAspell made it easy for me to spellcheck Vietnamese. Note: you do need to install the Aspell dictionary for each language required. The CocoAspell homepage has clear directions.

I do not know how to use that software. It is supposed to work out of the box, but I don't know how to switch the language.

Sometimes it dosen't work when switching dicionaries and sometimes it takes forever to load suggestions when right-clicking a misspelled word. The only option (AFAIK) for getting systemwide spellchecking in Danish and it works most of the time.

Sweet, this thing fixes the lack of a norwegian dictionary in OSX.
