WPS Office v11.* dictionaryPosted: 2021-04-03

I am using WPS Office 188.8.131.5219.XA installed from SBo on Slackware64 -current. First you need to have the dictionaries files. Since the ones from WPS office are no longer available (or I simply cannot find them), I searched a bit and ended up with the dictionaries for LibreOffice found here. I suppose you can download only the ones you need, however, I just downloaded the whole collection and unzipped it.

Ok, so where does this folder go? The
en_GB folder should be placed in either:
- for your user only:
Then just restart WPS Office. To select the dictionary go to:
