Description

Today the predictive mode of Om 2008.8 keyboard supports english text input only. It actually slows down non-english text input as you are forced to use keyboard zoom all the time because it's the only way to override the prediction feature.

Additional languages should be supported by the prediction feature (e.g. Spanish, French, German,...). This would improve the usability of Om 2008.8. for a large number of users.

What sources should one try? Gutenberg? Wikipedia? Is there an easy way to get the text for a language.

So comments providing URLs to huge amount of text for a certain language would be appreciated (preferable wikipedia dumps and gutenberg for a particular language).

Wikipedia provides XML dumps for different projects and languages (http://dumps.wikimedia.org/backup-index.html), e.g. a dump of the german Wikipedia (http://download.wikimedia.org/dewiki/20080724/dewiki-20080724-pages-articles.xml.bz2), but also other languages.
Probably these dumps are suitable for this, I don't know.

Using the Project Gutenberg Custom ISO Creator (http://snowy.arsc.alaska.edu/pgiso/index.php) you are able to create ISO files witch Gutenberg documents resticted to your wishes. You choose your document scope based on Gutenberg etext numbers (e.g. 1-30000, this should include all free documents of Gutenberg AFAIK), your prefered document format (e.g. TXT), document language (e.g. German) and get an ISO file containing all relevant documents.
