Programmer: Create Khmer Spelling Checker Solution for Microsoft Word
The Khmer language currently has a spell checker that we developed for OpenOffice using Hunspell. We developed the spell checking dictionary to help ensure high quality resources were being produced by our organization as well as to help others spell check in Khmer (it is available for free download here: http://www.sbbic.org/2010/05/27/open-office-khmer-spelling-checker/)
But most people use Microsoft Word and it is hard to always install OpenOffice on their computer (and OpenOffice sometimes has bugs working with long documents in Khmer). There is no viable solution for spell checking Khmer in Microsoft Word which makes our editing process more difficult as well as more difficult for all Cambodians.
We need a programmer with experience with C++ to create a solution to integrate the Khmer Hunspell dictionary into Microsoft Word as a spelling checker (a .net Hunspell exists here http://nhunspell.sourceforge.net/). We realize this could be a very difficult project, but as we are a non-profit, we do not have much funds to use for this project.
The resulting program will be given out for free download to anyone who desires to use it, and we would like the code to be open-source if possible as well so that other languages can benefit from the work.
Thank you for your consideration.
