hyphenation problems
on May 8, 2009 at 1:38:34 pm

Hi

We are a book typsetters using InDesign. The problem for us is that some of our customers insist that we use the Oxford spelling dictionary for hyphenation breaks. I think that Indesign uses the Chambers dictionary which in many cases hyphenates words differently. This means that our readers have to spend a lot of time checking hyphenation breaks manually. Has anybody any suggestions on the best way forward this problem

Regards

Ian C.

Dear Ian

I also need to hyphenate in InDesign according to rules in Oxford Spelling Dictionary. Did you find a solution?

Hi Marie

Problem not solved. The only way is too sit with the Oxford word division dictionary and check hyphenation as you go along. Very time consuming. Probably through time you could build up a discretionary hyphenation set. Apparently you can buy an electronic Oxford Dictionaries where you can key in a word to check. I suppose it would save a bit of time instead of looking through a hyphenation book.

Ian
