Thank you Butch.

Additional dictionaries are now available under Extras section over at Pandora home page.

To add new dictionary:
1. Close Pandora, unzip tlx-file into Pandora program folder.
2. When you start Pandora, it will create corresponding (indexed) lex-file, located inside the main data folder.

To assign newly added dictionary as default one:
1. Go to Settings/Composing Mail > Spell Checking Tab.
2. Select the dictionary from Default Dictionary combo-box. Hit OK.

If you wish to change any dictionary (add, remove or correct words):
1. Close Pandora, delete corresponding lex-file from main data folder.
2. Edit dictionary source tlx-file, save changes and start Pandora.

There are number of sites dedicated to locale specs, here is one that you can use when naming dictionary files:

For example, if you are adding Afrikaans (South Africa) dictionary, name corresponding tlx file: af-za.tlx
