The english dictionary is awesome - period.
Ther germant dicts i tried suck. personally i have no problem writing my 
messages is english.
sad but true, not all of my folks would understand my messages if i 
wrote the in english, that is why i don't want to use the dict.
another argument is that i don't use correct spelling, and words that 
don't really exist, which would change if i found a germna dictionary 
that is as awesome as the english one, that ships with illume
