Adobe Linguistic Library Plug-ins SDK For Mac Publisher's description
Offers support for developing software components (plug-ins) for Linguistic Library.
The "Adobe Linguistic Library plug-ins SDK" contains information and resources related to developing software components (plug-ins) for Linguistic Library. With the Linguistic Library SDK downloaded and installed, you can begin writing plug-in components to extend Linguistic Library functionality and provide additional linguistic services to multiple Adobe products.
Linguistic Library is a shared library that provides a uniform API to all Adobe applications that are utilizing linguistic services like spelling, hyphenation, user dictionaries, or thesauri. Today, these client applications include Adobe AcrobatВ® 8, LiveCycleВ® Form Designer, Adobe InDesignВ® CS3, Adobe IllustratorВ® CS3, and Adobe PhotoshopВ® CS3. We expect this list to grow over time.
Linguistic Library behaves as an intermediary between Adobe applications and linguistic service providers. On the one side, its uniform API to Adobe applications preventy changes and additions to a linguistic service being propagated to the applications. On the other side, it provides an open architecture that allows third-party linguistic-service providers to supply linguistic services through Linguistic Library, so the services can be used by all Adobe applications.
Thus, through its extensible architecture, the advantage of implementing plug-ins through Linguistic Library is that these additional linguistic services are available to all Adobe products listed above automatically if they use Linguistic Library. Would you not use Linguistic Library, you would need to write programs against every particular product API.
In addition, the independence achieved by Linguistic Library makes it possible for third-party providers to add new linguistic services even after the Adobe applications are installed.
