I'm working in a project (Ubuntu Manual, if you're curious) which requires TeX to create a PDF document. But when we have almost all translated, I've found that there wasn't an hyphenation pattern for my language (Asturian). Actually, there isn't almost anything.
So, I started creating a new one, which involved some hard mining in obscure Internet dungeons to get some documentation on how to do that.
My approach is creating a list of hyphenated words (etymological when I'm 100% sure, syllabic else) from our Aspell word list. When I've got a decent list, I'll use a hyphenation generator (I can't remember the actual name of the script) to have the Asturian hyphenation file, then I'll try and install under my TeX Live installation to test it, and then I'll upload it to TeX repositories.
No, OpenOffice.org hyphenation is not an option (it still doesn't exist).
My question is this: Is there anything else I'm missing to have a working hyphenation for my language? Am I fully wrong and that won't work?
Thank you in advance.
