Dashes™ Hy-phen-a-tion

Dashes™ is based upon a powerful hyphenation algorithm — it’s based upon the principals of modern linguistics. In all of the languages offered, Dashes™ is fast and accurate.

It accurately hyphenates in Germanic languages (German, Icelandic, Norwegian, Dutch, Swedish, and Danish) and in other compounding languages such as Finnish and Hungarian. It also supports the new German orthography rules. See below a list of supported languages.

Accuracy

In all of the languages offered, Dashes™ is over 99.9% accurate against our word lists of 92,000 to 480,000 words. According to these lists, it inserts over 98.5% of the acceptable hyphens.

Dashes™ uses algorithms and exception tables and the English version is 100% correct against CNS’s English spelling dictionary.

Because Dashes™ is an algorithm, it will also hyphenate words that are outside of the domain of standard dictionaries with high accuracy.

Speed & Size

Even on lower-end systems such as the 180MHz Power Macintosh 8500/180 or 200MHz Pentium, Dashes™ hyphenates at a rate of over 30,000 words per second. The space required for all languages together is about 170 KB.

Portability

Dashes™ is written in highly portable C code and has been implemented on the Macintosh, IBM PC, NextStep, VMS, Sun, HP, DEC, and other Unix workstations. Custom ports to other platforms are available upon request.
