The hyphenators follow the rules and exceptions of hyphenation governed by leading academies. They internally take care of every peculiarity of a language. They correctly hyphenate new words and even complex compounds.
To simplify implementation all differences in hyphenation between languages have been encapsulated. Therefore the *TALŌ hyphenator engine can be applied in an unambiguous manner. Languages are enabled by means of keywords.
The *TALŌ hyphenators are available for nearly every European
language and some Asian languages:
Dutch, Afrikaans, English (British, Canadian, American, Australian, New Zealand English and South African English idiom),
German (alt und neu), Swiss German (alt und neu), Swedish (3 principerna, inkl. SAOL), French
(2x), Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese (Iberian and Brazilian idiom, including the acordo ortográfico da língua portuguesa),
Italian, Finnish, Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian (2x), Nynorsk (2x), Estonian, Latvian,
Lithuanian, Romanian, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Croatian, Slovene, Serbian,
Macedonian, Russian, Bulgarian, Greek, Turkish, Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Melayu, Tagalog/Pilipino,
Maltese, Hebrew, Thai, Zulu and Xhosa. The Thai and Khmer "hyphenator" segments sentences into words but does not
insert hyphens (for updates see Hyphenator languages).

The hyphenators have been implemented as a Unicode shared library available for different platforms (Windows, Mac OS X 10.4+, Linux Intel, Sun's Solaris 9 sparc). The library (current version 126.96.36.199, April 2021), consisting of more than 84 language modules, supports exceptions and special hyphenations. For some platforms a source package of the library will be required.
