German (lexicon size 1,210,000, selection October 2014) (4x) In 2006 the German spelling has again been reformed , and we also updated our lexicons. Previous versions will be kept in the meantime. The German spelling is distributed in four versions, “alt (pre 1996), new 1996 (the very first reform), new current orthography (2013), and the dpa version (2007)”. These versions include automatic respelling from old to new spelling forms (e.g., Prozeß → Prozess) and of feste grammatische und lexikale Wen- dungen. Using the old orthography or “alte Rechtschreibung” enables you to purify your texts, a full re-spelling system from new to old will surprise you (e.g., Prozess → Prozeß). A version for the Nachrichtenagenturen (dpa) as proposed by the German-speaking news agencies is also available. (http://www.die-nachrichtenagenturen.de). The orthography neue Rechtschreibung is in agreement with the Duden 26, July 2013, und the IDS Sprach Report, July 2006. The German lexicon is based on over ca. 300.000 expanded catchwords (konjugierte Stichwörter), and includes all German toponyms (Ortsnamen), over 13,000 autocorrections (Umschreibungen) and an extensive medical lexicon. Moreover, spell checking is strict, we don’t approve errors like: Oberklasse-Wagen, Oberstufe- Schüle , Klasse-Bücher. It has to be: Oberklassenwagen, Oberstufenschüle , Klassenbücher.
