TEX hyphenation patterns TUG logo


This is the central place for hyphenation patterns in TEX. They are all bundled in a single package called hyph-utf8.

For pattern authors

If you are a pattern author and wish to update your patterns, please contact the hyph-utf8 package maintainers through the tex-hyphen mailing list .


The list of supported languages is in the table below. Note that German and Spanish have additional documentation in a separate file.

(if patterns for any other language exist and are missing below please let us know)

This list is very incomplete; the full list of supported languages will be displayed when Mojca lets me merge the pull request -- Arthur.
