- Doesn't seem to remember at all for me !
- Principle is flawed for many use cases : it should offer to remember the domain, or some rules like : .fr domain by default French, etc etc There are many ways to make it more useful/usable.
- It could try and recognize the language in the mail body or at least in the title ?
The REAL need (and what worked with the venerable Eudora 20 years ago) is simply to look into two selected dictionaries, so there is absolutely nothing to do.
This is a feature that should always have been in TB core.

EDITS :

It actually seems to remember for some contacts but there were reasons that led me to think it didn't remember.

Another issue : when CC'ing, it seems to tag the CCs with the language used, which in my case is definitely not good.
I send emails in English (or French) and typically CC French colleagues who therefore keeps oscillating between Fr and En :-(
-> I would suggest to not record CCs language.

Yet another issue : I use 3 computers (2 desktops and a laptop). I don't think there is an easy way to synchronize the associations. Maybe with a storage on the cloud managed by the extension ? But I don't want to enable this for obvious security reasons.
-----
I put back 2 stars since I understand some users might find it useful, but it doesn't cut it for me.
I think I should just un-install this extension and keep whining about how Eudora was (20 years ago) so much better than Thunderbird :-( I tried to ask for some obvious enhancement, long ago, but to no avail.

Hi Bert,
first of all, thanks for trying my addon.

> - Doesn't seem to remember at all for me !

I'm sad that it did not work for you.
I'd like to help you make it work. To help you I need you to follow these steps: https://github.com/beltrachi/automatic_dictionary/blob/master/README.md#bug-reporting

> Principle is flawed for many use cases : it should offer to remember the domain, or some rules like : .fr domain by default French, etc etc There are many ways to make it more useful/usable.

Well it does that in certain way. It's described here: https://github.com/beltrachi/automatic_dictionary#target

>- It could try and recognise the language in the mail body or at least in the title ?

That's another approach that solves another problem, and it's already done. Don't use my extension, you can try this one https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/thunderbird/addon/dictionary-switcher/

> The REAL need (and what worked with the venerable Eudora 20 years ago) is simply to look into two selected dictionaries, so there is absolutely nothing to do.

I may agree on this part. You can enter the Thunderbird community and push for that to happen if you want https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/get-involved/

This add-on track your usage "on the cloud" by default, you have to manually untick this option in the settings after installation.

Hi Theo8,

I just removed data collection completely on last version. Hope that makes you more comfortable with it.

In an international world you have for free done what Mozilla should have considered a core feature. Very useful plugin.

Thank you very much for your hard work!

A use this add-on every day, switching between different languages. It could use some better way to figure out the default language, but I really can't complain. Thumbs up!

Great addon but I really miss two-language support like English and French or Italian. Maybe it is Thunderbird's fault, but for Europeans it is a must

Works as expected. Of course if you keep switching the language for the same people it will suggest the last set language ;)

I've been using it for month now and never experiencing anything but a good functionallity removing the tiresome task of changing the spelling lanuage.
Just thumbs up from me.

is not steady: sometimes it remembers my choices, sometimes not. And sometimes all the words are underlined in red although when I check the spelling, it is the correct one.

Hi, sad to hear that. It should be working. Which version are you using?

I released the version 1.10.2 yesterday with some fixes.
If you are in an old one, you will be updated automatically eventually. If that's not the case you can download that version from mozilla and install it manually here: https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/downloads/latest/automatic-dictionary-switching/type:attachment/addon-116388-latest.xpi?src=dp-btn-primary

Hope this helps.

If you are in last version 1.10.2 and it still does not work, please email me and I'll be pleased to help.

It would be nice if the spelling system in Thunderbird could recognise messages in multiple languages.
However, I reckon it is perhaps a limitation of Thunderbird itself.

c'est n'est pas de l'imparfait du tout ! reconnaît même des adressés mixtes.
un bémol minuscule : on ne voit la langue sélectée qu'en cliquant sur le bouton drop-down et on ne remarque que la langue est fausse qu lorsque le correcteur souligne en rouge à-tout-va...
ce qui serait sympa, c'est un petit drapeau à droite du drop-down indiquant la langue sélectionnée. Je vais écrire à M. Beltrachi.

Works great. You have to set up your preferences manually at the beginning but the add-on keeps track of the different languages you use for your different contacts and switches automatically.

This is just amazing. It automatically switches your dictionary to the language you actually need when typing. This needs to be integrated into Firefox. :-)

What can I say? It works. I have been waiting for a long time for a working version of "Markov Dictionary Switcher", but now I am happy.

Thanks.

Would be great to use it on postbox, and seems to be easy to port addons from thunderbird.

Thunderbird v52 install seems to have killed this add-on. Not a complaint. Just FYI. I reverted back to v45 and the add-on is working flawlessly as before. Wonderful tool to have! Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.0). 

I'm already looking into it and hope to release a fix this week.
Thank you for reporting because I wasn't aware of it. And thanks for the 5 stars review!

Update: Published new version that fixes compatibility with v52.
