I have reached Test Case #11 (there is a link to http://manual-test.libreoffice.org/manage/caseversion/772/), where I found the 

Environment Settings

Download the test document from attachment: language-
. But on that test there are only test documents attached for En and 
FR so far ... :( Do you plan to add test documents for other 
languages as well?

And in the test description there is

    For spell check, install a myspell-{language} package
    For grammar check, install a libreoffice-languagetool-{language} 
    For example:
        English language: myspell-british, myspell-american, 
        French language: myspell-french, libreoffice-language-fr
        German language: myspell-german, libreoffice-language-de
. If I see this correctly, LO is using hunspell nowadays (look at 
"Tools – Options – Language Settings – Writing Aids". Below 
"Available language modules" is the entry "Hunspell SpellChecker", 
and if I am not completely wrong here, that means, LO is using its 
internal Hunspell SpellChecker ... ;) ). And LanguageTool is either 
an Extension for LO or a different package (see 
www.languagetool.org) ... ;) The only grammar checker in LO is the 
Lightproof grammar checker, but alas only for the English language 
... :(

And does this "libreoffice-language-$TLD mean, someone should 
install the adequate langpack? Would it not be better to write 
something like

    spell-checker: You need to install the langpack for your 
language for LibreOffice to test the spellchecker.
    grammar check: You can install the LanguageTool extension from 
www.languagetool.org, if you want to use a grammar checker for your 
    For example:
        English language: LibreOffice langpack-en_US or en_GB
        French language: LibreOffice langpack-fr_FR
        German language: LibreOffice langpack-de_DE
or the like?

And there is a missing "s" in "mispelt" btw. ... ;) And some strange 
sounding sentences, and "libreoffice" instead of LibreOffice and 
.... (I think, I should better stop, before someone kills me ... ;) 
). Maybe I find some time tomorrow to try to rewrite a couple of the 
test cases (though I would prefer, if an native speaker would do 
Sorry for the inconvenience and HTH
