I'm working on an Italian translation for my Django project, and I want to have Italian spell checker enabled in PyCharm.  Well this is the only advice I could find on it, so I generated the italian.dic file using aspell and its close to 700 MB in Size!  Well I've tried it both ways with the utf-8 and the iso-8859-1 encodings, and in either case when in PyCharm 1.2.1 on Windows 7 I Can add the dictionary file and it essentially hoses the program when I try to apply the setting.  I can watch memory usage climb to about 600MB before stagering and the program never does respond again.  It sure would be nice to get multi-language support working for editing these messages files.

1. You don't need to install Thunderbird, you can download dictionary from the mozilla repository or Libre Office:

2. IntelliJ uses plain words dictionaries, so is better to install Aspell dictionary (, export it using: `aspell -d pl dump master` (language default encoding).

3. Not everything that you don't understand is stupid...
