I started to use Pages. I want to change spell check language. But I don't find Turkish in the language menu (inspector of Pages). How can I add Turkish into the language menu? Thanks.

Normally, for a language not included in OS X, you can try adding a dictionary from the OpenOffice app, as explained at

Unfortunately, Turkish is not there. Here is a a site with some .dic and .aff files which I have not tested myself.

I tried downloading the oxt file you mentioned here and changing the extension to zip, but it doesn't seem to contain dic or aff files. Is there some way to install it on OS X? – user495470 Nov 25 '12 at 13:19
@Lauri Seems not, I guess I never followed that up to see if it was the same kind of .oxt as on the OpenOffice list. – Tom Gewecke Nov 25 '12 at 15:40
